Drawing from the Collections: Gestures and Expressions
The Art Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online art-making experiences.
Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom, so participants can join live from home. A variety of media and techniques will be explored using materials readily available. Each week’s lesson features works from the Museum’s collections and is introduced
by an Art Museum Student Tour Guide.

This live art-making class is inspired by the Xochipala figurines Seated adult and youth. Ceramic figurines from Xochipala, in the Mexican state of
Guerrero, are renowned for their attention to anatomical detail and expressiveness. Precise renditions of human anatomy—including bone, muscle, and fat as well as the telltale signs of age—lead us to imagine that the figurines are portraits of specific individuals.
Perhaps the greatest example of Xochipala
figural art, this seated pair captures an engaged, animated conversation, brilliantly expressed through the careful posing of unadorned bodies.
In this class we will consider the intimacy and emotive expressions of the Xochipala figurines
as we draw group portraits capturing gestures, feelings, and relationships between people.
