Sketching in the Gallery Series at the Remington Museum
 
Ogdensburg, NY — The Frederic Remington Art Museum invites the public to the second class in a new Sketching in the Gallery series on Wednesday, March 20 from 10:00 am-12:00 pm in the Museum’s Albert P. Newell and Addie P. Newell Galleries. Participants will get a chance to spend some time with the collection of Remington sculptures while honing their own drawing skills with the program’s instructor and local artist, Julie Pratt. 
 
This second class of the three-part series will look at Remington’s sculptures and the unique challenge of rendering a 3-dimensional sculpture onto a 2-dimensional surface. 
 
All ranges of drawing experience are welcome. Drawing materials will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own sketchbooks and pencils if they prefer. The cost of the class is $5 for members of the Remington Museum and $10 for non-members. The class is limited to 15 participants. To register for this program, sign up online at fredericremington.org, call 315-393-2425, or email info@fredericremington.org.
 
In the third, and last class of the series on April 17, participants will explore Remington’s paintings: how he used color to create atmosphere, how he built his compositions, and his handling of the paint. 
 
Each class can be attended independently of the other. Attending all three is not required, although it is recommended.
 
The Frederic Remington Art Museum is located at 303 Washington Street, Ogdensburg, NY 13669. The Frederic Remington Art Museum expands and deepens appreciation and understanding of Remington’s work by engaging contemporary audiences and keeping his legacy relevant. It is dedicated to collecting, exhibiting, preserving and interpreting the art and archives of Frederic Remington, and contains an unmatched collection of his works. Current visiting hours are Thursday through Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
