Paton Miller, TAKEOVER! artist, educator, and curator of the East End Collected series, will be offering a drawing class for children ages 8 and up.
Paton, who has been teaching for more than 35 years, says “I haven’t reinvented the wheel in drawing instruction but what I have found over the years is that my young students are able to grasp the same lessons I received while studying at academy when I was 19 years old. I see my job as making the basic cornerstones of drawing as clear as possible. The results, more than three decades of them, have been impressive.”
Advance reservations encouraged. Drop off’s permitted.
All levels. Materials included.

Presented by New York Academy of Art with Southampton Arts Center. Curated by David Kratz and Stephanie Roach, and edited by Emma Gilbey Keller. Artists and writers are always the antennae of our society, all the more so at a time as challenging as this one. They have an opportunity—some might say, a duty—to interpret this moment and imagine the world not only as it is, but also as it could be. This is the guiding challenge of the group exhibition, 2020 Vision. We asked artists, writers, and creative thinkers to consider three questions of critical importance: Our lives will never be the same, but what will change look like? What do we want to keep as we rebuild? And what must we guard against? We invited these creators to express what they saw, what they felt, and what they experienced during this time of pause and reassessment, upheaval and risk, and anxiety and uncertainty. It is our hope that 2020 Vision marks one of many beginnings in the necessary process of ‘post-traumatic growth’ and positive change for our society and our world.
