RICHARD BARNET - Figurative Drawing and Anatomy Presentation

Richard Barnet, Draughtsman, Watercolorist, and Sculptor is a master in many mediums. He encourages students to explore working in sculpture, paint and other media. Such work is often a natural extension or consequence of drawing.

Mr. Barnet has taught at the Art Students League of New York since 1980.
