Copyist Program – National Gallery of Art

I began the Copyist Program at the National Gallery of Art on October 4th, and although I was excited and eager to begin, I have to admit I was a bit nervous. I wasn’t sure how I was going to handle the crowds of people who visit the museum on a daily basis. The application process for the program took about to 2 months to complete, but the wait was well worth it.

Stop by and see me if you happen to visit the NGA on Tuesdays.  I’m on the main floor of the West Wing, from 10am – 4pm. If you don’t see me, I’m probably having lunch in the Cascade Cafe around 12:30 or 1:00.

Hope to see you there!

  1. Hi Sonia, I’m so happy to see your new site and blog. You are moving up my friend. I especially like seeing the progression of the first work in your copyist program at the National. I’m sure you will grow leaps and bounds, as this picture surely illustrates. What an experience too. Keep up the good work and hopefully we shall meet sometime soon. Carroll

  2. Hi Sonia, Your paintings look absolutely great. The series of snapshots are a great idea. Go girl!!!

  3. Sonia,

    Just a beautiful copy. Your drawing and color work is very good and I’m so pleased. Love the fast drawing, under tones and color over tones as you go. RTeminds me of my first oil painting classes at MICA. How much time are they giving you? Looks like a fun program, except maybe the drive. I was ablre to find your painting and got it hung today. Looking forward to seeing you and Dan.
