Explore gesture, proportion, perspective and volume while working from a nude model as well as Sharrer's paintings.

    Katy Schneider teaches drawing and painting at Smith College. She is a recipient of a Guggenheim and an N.E.A. fellowship, and awards from the National Academy of Design and the Academy of Arts and Letters.
