Drawing from Antiquity: Medusa

Drawing from Antiquity


The Getty Villa

Take part in the centuries-old tradition of sketching from ancient works by drawing from the Museum’s collection and sights at the Getty Villa. The head of Medusa was used by ancient Greeks and Romans as a protective symbol to ward off evil. In this session, learn about Medusa, find objects with her image, and create a drawing from imagination or based on existing work on view. Supplies are provided, and all skill levels are welcome. Sign up begins 15 minutes before the start of the program at the Tour Meeting Place. This is a free program.
