Youth Drawing 101 is for young artists who are looking to hone their drawing skills and learn 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 in order to strengthen critical thinking and observational skills. All skill levels are welcome.


Pre-registration is required for each monthly session and class size is limited. New sessions begin on the first Wednesday of each month. We offer scholarships for New Britain students, so please feel free to ask if you qualify. For any questions or concerns, please contact (), Coordinator of School & Family Programs: () or (860) 229-0257, ext. 220.During the month of January students will be introduced to our NEW/NOW artist Tony de los Reyes’ visual interpretation of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. These works will inspire students to use their drawing skills to make interpretations of written works come to life on paper. Students will explore how both line quality and understanding value can work to enhance their ideas.

Cost Members $10/month; non-Members $20/month
