Event Description

Join us for drawing sessions that take inspiration from the High’s campus and collection!
Led by artist Larkin Ford, each session focuses on a different way of seeing and capturing the world around us while allowing participants to explore their own personal expression and develop their drawing skills.

All materials will be provided, but participants may bring their own materials, if desired. Each session description includes a supply list. Drawing from Experience sessions will have seating based on social distancing guidelines and will be outside when weather allows.

Space is limited, and preregistration is required.
Your ticket includes access to the Museum galleries.

About Your Instructor
Larkin Ford teaches drawing and painting at Georgia State University, where he earned his MFA. He spent his formative years in rural North Carolina, weaving this and other personal experiences into enigmatic narratives through drawings, paintings, and sculptures. Ford has exhibited work in Atlanta at Whitespace, The Mast, and Showerhaus’s High Rise Show. For more information and images, please visit and @larkinford.

May 29: Scrambled Grid Drawings

Using grids in the traditional method of copying square by square allows the artist to get proper proportions more easily than drawing from life. However, we can also explore scrambling the grid, substituting elements from other source images, altering the medium, or drawing irregular grids. What would happen if you combined multiple techniques to create new stylistic combinations? Get ready for some grid experimentation!

To see upcoming sessions, visit the Drawing from Experience program page.

Please note: Based upon CDC guidance, face coverings are optional for individuals visiting the Museum.
