Barnes Foundation

Drawing Skills and Painting Outcomes

Instructor: Michael Rossman, MFA

At the Barnes and PAFA, examine paintings where the artist’s drawing skills influence brushstrokes and the depiction of subject matter. Emphases are integration of drawing as part of personal touch and its role in the spatial conception and graphic construction of a painting. Learn how drawing contributes to a painting’s outcome and to an artist’s plans for future work.
