Drawing Night at CIMA

16 November 2015 / 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

CIMA is excited to hold its first ever Drawing Night, in collaboration with the New York Studio School, opening CIMA’s unique and intimate setting to students and artists and encouraging them to interact with, analyze, and draw inspiration from Giorgio Morandi’s works. Painter Graham Nickson, Dean of the NYSS and originator of that institution’s famed Drawing Marathon, will open the program with reflections on drawing, close study, and Morandi. Materials will be provided by the legendary Italian papermaker Fabriano, maker of the artist paper that Morandi himself used. Currently celebrating the 750th anniversary of papermaking in Fabriano Italy, the company has also donated graphite pencils from the traditional Austrian manufacturer Cretacolor. Limited to 30 participants.

Proposed Schedule:

6pm  Registration

6:10  Remarks by Graham Nickson

7:30  Discussion

7:50/8pm  Conclusion of Program
