One of the many recent cultural highlights has been the Picasso sculpture retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. Another was undoubtedly Jonathan Twingley‘s klass, Stretching at Sketchbook Skool.
If you missed either or both, I’m sure you are quite bereft.
Last Friday, Mr. Twingley and I braved the snow to see the Picasso show one last time. I brought along my camera and Jonathan brought his sketchbook — he has visited the show a dozen times and drawn virtually every sculpture in the show.
Unfortunately, the MOMA show ended a few days later. Fortunately, however, and by popular demand, Stretching is set to return for an encore performance at SBS in just a couple of weeks. I hope I’ll see you there. Enroll now before it too is but a memory.

I like all your last posts. I like the small vidéo formats,… well, I don’t have a load of time to read to long posts, because if not I couldn’t draw ! ;-((
Thanks for this instructive articles et very interesting!
How thrilling! Can’t wait for Stretching to start. I don’t know if I’ve been looking at sculpture with enough mind power. Off to find a museum…
Thanks for sharing this Danny, I saw the Picasso show in Los Angeles, May 1994, I enjoyed it immensely. I will tell you this though Sketchbook Skool would have given me tools to enjoy the exhibit that I did not have then. Always a treat to see Twingley.
allowed to use pen and ink in a museum! Lucky! not at LACMA! or OCMA!
It’s unclear (to me) which class, old or new, shows the cutting up of drawings to make collages. That’s the one I want to enroll in. Can you, Danny, or Morgan let me know so I enroll in the right one? Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org

Diane, the exercise you describe is in Stretching.
