We will meet in the DuVal Studio and use the McLean Community Center, Dolley Madison Library, and many things in-between, as our source of drawing subjects: we will explore perspective, contrast, shading, color, and more as we investigate the different environments, nature, and hidden corners of this rich corner of McLean!

A one-week mix-up of all sorts of mediums and media for teens who want to meet up and try out different forms of art that they can apply to their everyday creative expression.

We will meet in the DuVal Studio, and explore the McLean Community Center, the Dolley Madison Library, the current shows installed at MPA, and more for our inspiration.

Vosler Young Artists’ Studio at McLean Project for the Arts

For any young artist with the desire to learn classical drawing. No previous experience is necessary.
A new classical art program created by professional artist Kerry Vosler for young art students. In an Atelier environment held in the beautiful light-filled Emerson Gallery, students will study and draw from life with a master instructor. As students master core concepts and show understanding through their drawings, they will be given more complicated concepts to master; students will draw a variety of pictures in charcoal throughout the week including copy work from the late nineteenth century, Bargue-Gérôme Drawing Course, culminating in a session with a live model on Friday afternoon. Students will have at least two portfolio drawings by the end of the week, and parents and families are encouraged to attend the closing certificate ceremony on Friday at 4:15. Students bring a bag lunch and drink each day. Tuition includes all materials costs.

13-18 years
