Adult Workshops & Programs
 
The Frederic Remington Art Museum offers a range of programs as well as monthly classes for the adolescent to adult age group. See below for upcoming programs and classes and their descriptions. If you're interested in signing up for one of our workshops, you can call the museum at 315.393.2425.
 
Drapery, Folds, & Wrinkles:
Fabric Drawing Class
Monday, July 2nd, 10am to noon
Eva Caten Remington Education Center Classroom
323 Washington Street, Ogdensburg
 
Whether it’s the backdrop to a still life or the folds of fabric covering a figure, drawing fabric can be a challenge. Instructor Julie Pratt will guide participants first through a number of exercises to develop their observational drawing skills, and then will turn to the drawing of fabric. This class is appropriate not only for those who want to explore drawing drapery but for anyone who wants to further their drawing skills in general.
 
All skill levels are welcome, and materials will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own materials if they prefer.The cost of the class is $15 for members of the Remington Museum and $25 for non-members. The class is limited to 12 participants.
