Have you always wanted try observational drawing but never had the opportunity? Juliette Aristides will lead you through exercises from her new instructional artist’s sketchbook, Beginning Drawing Atelier. In this one hour intensive drawing workshop, you will be given an introduction to drawing and the opportunity to start practicing. This new book is meant to be used, written on, and sketched in since the best way to learn about art is to make it. No experience necessary.

Beginning Drawing Atelier, with its unique workbook/sketchbook approach, and high-quality paper, offers a comprehensive and contemporary twist on traditional Atelier art instruction practices. Atelier education is centered on the belief that working in a studio is the best place to learn about art. In this elegant and inspiring workbook, master contemporary artist and best-selling author Juliette Aristides breaks down the drawing process into small, manageable lessons, presents them progressively, and introduces time-tested principles and techniques in the Atelier tradition that are easily accessible. On every page, Aristides uses the works of Old Masters and today's most respected realist artists to demonstrate and teach the principles of realist drawing and painting, taking students step by step through the learning curve yet allowing them to work at their own pace.

Join us in the Rare book Room to learn first-hand drawing experience with expert Juliette Aristides! Please bring your own pencils (2H-2B recommended but not required) and erasure.
