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 March students will look at the artwork from A Joint Venture: The Collection of Thomas and Kathryn Cox. Through observation of these works, students will take “visual notes” in order to find out how they can use these images to make their own drawing. Students will learn tips and tricks as they create their masterpiece of imagery in pen and ink. 

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