Spend an afternoon sketching in the fields and meadows of Storm King with artist, educator, and conservator Corey D’Augustine. While most sculptors use preparatory sketches to plan their work, this workshop will focus on the viewer’s perspective by emphasizing how we understand the volumes, contours, and colors of various works in Storm King’s collection.  Drawing materials will be provided. No previous drawing experience necessary.

  • Suggested age range: 5 and up

Corey D’Augustine is a conservator of modern and contemporary art and a technical art historian. He regularly works for the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and lectures on art history and art conservation at New York University, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Pratt Institute, The City College of New York, and the Museum of Modern Art. He is a specialist in American and European Post-war art and his research interests include 20th century painting materials and techniques and the conservation of monochrome paintings.

Family programming is supported by the Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky Fund for Family Programs, Goldie Anna Charitable Trust, and The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation.
