On Saturdays Aug. 8 and 15, the Farnsworth Art Museum hosts an online drawing workshop led by architect George Terrien. The workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Zoom both days.

All are invited to develop their approach and facility for sketching by observation. Led by an architect who has sketched for decades, the pursuit of basic and advanced skills will create synergy among eye, hand, and mind, sharpening attention and memory, celebrating our surroundings.

A practicing architect committed to education, professional responsibility, and social justice, Terrien has served as the national president of The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). From founding a firm that grew to 45 people in Portland, he had undertaken a variety of projects in six states before fulfilling a five-year commitment as the president of the Boston Architectural Center. Returning to private practice, he worked in California, Singapore, and Canada before coming home to Maine, where he lives in Rockland with his wife, the painter Connie Hayes.

The fee for this program is $50; $60 for Farnsworth members. To register for this program, or for more information, visit farnsworthmuseum.org.
