Format: In-person classes at different museums

with artist-instructor G Caruso

Learn about art and art history by studying the masterpieces on display at the Berlin state museums, opening another dimension to your sketchbook practice. The museum artworks come alive as we make studies and learn techniques with the guidance of classically trained artist G Caruso. G provides step by step technical demonstrations, revealing subtle secrets hidden within the process behind the artworks.

Each class has a specific focus and we will work from specifically selected artworks. In this way, the museum experience can go from overwhelming to intimate, as you develop unique relationships through your drawing practice with individual artworks and artists. Instead of spending 10 seconds in front of 200 paintings, spend two hours getting know how just one artwork really works and what it has to offer you for your own practice.

Remember, “good artists borrow, great artists steal.” (Picasso)
