Manton Study Center for Works on Paper

SOLD OUT. The Manton Study Center for Works on Paper invites artists of all skill levels to work closely after thematic selections of prints, drawings, and photographs from the Clark’s collection. Each month explores a different theme—Trees (October), Nocturnes (November), and Ornamental Design (December). Enjoy an open hour to participate in the artistic tradition of copying earlier works or choose to practice fundamentals and explore new ideas. Basic materials are provided. Artists bringing their own supplies should note that only graphite pencils are allowed in the Study Center and museum galleries.   

Space is limited to 15 participants; reservations required.
