Michael Iovenko School Programs
The Drawing Center's Michael Iovenko School Programs invite students to embark on a visual discovery process of the magic of drawing. Since 1980, the Center has reached out to young people by providing discussion and art-making activities inspired by its exhibitions of historical and contemporary drawings.
This unique museum experience is enhanced by the Center's intimate gallery setting. The Drawing Center currently offers two programs comprised of on-site and in-school activities that are free of charge and serve K-12 New York City public school students. Activities foster the development of visual-thinking skills and comply with the New York State Learning Standards in the Arts.
Draw and Reflect Art Workshop
This on-site workshop engages students with The Drawing Center's exhibitions through a guided tour and hands-on project. Specific works will be discussed in detail in order to practice sustained observation and encourage more personal and thoughtful responses.
The art-making project will take place in the galleries as well, continuing the students' immersion with the work and enabling experimentation with visual concepts.
