Harry Everett Townsend, Untitled (WWI Trench Sketch), ca. 1918, Graphite on paper, Gift of Mrs. Elaine Hanley
Harry Everett Townsend was one of eight official combat artists commissioned by the American Expeditionary Force to depict
the rigors of World War I , as well as the advent of industrial combat. His works—on display in the Museum's featured exhibition Harry Everett Townsend: Illustrations of a World War I Artist— while visually aesthetic as art, also act as method of recorded history .
November's edition of Youth Drawing 101 will get students in touch with their everyday surroundings, teaching them to record and illustrate their own history. Students will explore one- and two-point perspective, using a street scene from their hometown or downtown New Britain as reference. They will cut and paste paper and recycled objects to create collaged two-dimensional works.
