A chalk drawing depicts a figure study of six women’s heads in a mostly light red palette, with some black and white.

Among its many disruptions, the pandemic robbed students of the opportunity to explore works of art, in person, in the Harvard Art Museums. With considerable help from colleagues and some simple technology, however, visiting lecturer and senior scholar Margaret Morgan Grasselli was able to teach her seminar Drawing Lessons from the Art Study Center and to approximate for her students the joy of experiencing artworks up close. Join her as she talks about the challenges she faced and presents favorite drawings by Michelangelo, Rubens, Watteau, and Van Gogh, among others.

Led by:
Margaret Morgan Grasselli, Visiting Senior Scholar for Drawings, Division of European and American Art; and Visiting Lecturer, Department of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University
