Guest Lecturer

Princeton Academy of Art

PrincetonAcademyofArt-logo.png

Princeton Academy of Art is a traditional art atelier, which teaches its students to draw, paint, and sculpt using plaster casts of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures as models.

 

Through my lectures, I place these statues into their original ancient context for the students, deepening their historical as well as artistic knowledge.
