In celebration of Juliette Aristides's highly anticipated third book, Lessons in Classical Drawing: Essential Techniques from Inside the Atelier, Gage Academy of Art was thrilled to host a release party, book signing, and a gallery exhibition that highlighted works both from the book and examples of drawings that put the fundamental drawing principles into practice.
The following photographs illumate just a few of many memorable aspects of the evening, while a 360 degree capture of the Steele Gallery exhibition can be seen here (courtesy of Jean Paul Kirsch).
