What To Expect

10:30 AM – 1 PM

Experience the Crocker's world-renowned collection and diverse exhibitions through discussion and artmaking, and let great art of the past and present inspire your own creative expression. Most classes include at least one gallery visit to view the permanent collection or a special exhibition. The Museum's highly trained staff and instructors are committed to providing students of all experience levels with a supportive and engaging experience. Advance registration required.

Let loose and explore the freedom of gestural drawing and painting, an expressive process made famous by Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, and others. Described as a loose, quick, and energetic method, this approach to artmaking is a fun way to relax and enjoy the process. Get plenty of practice drawing and painting objects from observation, including still lifes and figures. Participants must provide their own supplies.
