If you have no artistic ability to speak of, the idea of sitting in a museum and sketching great art might sound pointless. But the act of drawing ––– concentrating the mind, eyes, and hand together –– forces you to live in the moment in a way that’s relaxing and gratifying. No less than Flannery O’Connor thought it sharpened your powers of observation in daily life, so head out to the Amon Carter Museum’s adult drawing workshop entitled Draw ‘til Dusk: Portraits (6-9pm Thu July 12). All ability and experience levels are welcome to participate in this free session where intructors offer general guidelines on sketching the human figure using art works from the Carter’s current show American Vanguards: Graham, Davis, Gorky, de Kooning, and Their Circle, 1927-1942. Pencil and paper will be provided; no reservations necessary.
