The Manton Study Center for Works on Paper invites artists of all experience and skill levels to work closely after thematic selections of drawings from the Clark’s collection.

April’s theme, “Works in Progress,” features prints and drawings produced by artists in preparation for more finished compositions. These studies and experiments with form, composition, and shading provide insight into artists’ processes and how they thought through complex designs. The museum will offer an open session to participate in the tradition of copying earlier artworks or choose to practice fundamentals and explore ideas.

Basic materials are provided. Artists bringing their own supplies should note that only graphite pencils are allowed in the Study Center and museum galleries.

The workshop is free, but advanced registration is required, and capacity is limited to 15 people.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
