Classes are limited to five students. This provides each student with plenty of one on one time with Matthew throughout the session.

Each class is roughly three hours in duration. There is a fifteen-minute break at the midway point of the class.

It’s recommended that students bring a small 11 x 14-inch drawing pad along with a few 2b pencils. Traveling light will make the class that much more enjoyable.

We then progress into the features of the face utilizing light and shade. Class will be held on Saturday, June 29, 12:30 to 3:30pm.


The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a great place to learn how to compose your drawings. We will draw from and analyze paintings from around the Museum. We will also draw some of the interior spaces from life, incorporating multiple compositional techniques. Class will be held on Saturday, July 13, 12:30 to 3:30pm.

Individualized Instruction

Because Matthew limits his class size to no more than five students you can definitely be guaranteed individualized attention.  

The class usually spends roughly thirty to forty minutes in choice galleries around the museum. Each gallery provides students with multiple subjects to draw.
