Throwback Thursday: Advanced Placement Drawing Classes

September 21, 2017

In the early 1980s, the Albright-Knox offered a series of Advanced Placement Drawing courses for area high-school students. These classes offered talented young artists an opportunity to study works of art in the museum's collection closely and in-person.
