Studio Squared: Portraiture and the Black, Male Body

  • The Studio Museum in Harlem 144 W 125th St New York, NY, 10027 United States

Studio Squared is a series of informal art-making workshops aimed at making a wide range of studio practices accessible to adult audiences. Each workshop focuses on a particular theme and creative process inspired by our exhibitions, and explores methods of creative production through an experiential approach. To celebrate International Human Rights Day, this special edition of Studio Squared will begin with a brief tour of Titus Kaphar: The Jerome Project led by writer, change agent, and criminal justice professional, William Eric Waters. Participants will then head downstairs for a figure drawing class led by a trained teaching artist, where a live model will pose for drawers of all levels of ability. Embracing new trends in portraiture and confronting the pervasive lack of African American figure models in the classroom environment, this workshop celebrates the black, male body!
