Youth Drawing 101

(Ages 11-13)

Wednesdays, 4-5 p.m. (Sept.-June)

Preregistration Required

Youth Drawing 101 is for young artists looking to hone their drawing skills while learning about the history and practice of art. Each month will focus on a different topic ranging from Pop Art to architectural space to portraiture to abstraction. Classes will often take place in the galleries with students working directly from the NBMAA’s collection to strengthen critical thinking and observation skills. All skill levels are welcome.

Preregistration is required for each monthly session and class size is limited. New sessions begin on the first Wednesday of each month. We do offer scholarships for New Britain students, so please feel free to ask if you qualify. For any questions or concerns, please contact Kate Swanson, Coordinator of Family & Community Programs, at (860) 229-0257, ext. 220 or at
