Tune in and draw along in these virtual workshops with artist Dr Bill Platz. Discover tips for approaching drawing and take inspiration from artworks in ‘European Masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York’. You’ll be virtually transported to Bill’s studio and invited to draw from live costumed models.

Session 2 | Laying in Dry Ground
