Drawing from Antiquity: Contrapposto


The Getty Villa

This is a past event

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. Human figures in classical Greek and Roman art appeared dynamic even when standing still. Discover the shifts in pose and balance that enliven bronze and marble statues in our galleries, and draw your favorite. 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.
