Robert Reed taught drawing and painting for 50 years (Skidmore College 1965-1969 and Yale University 1969-2014), received the 2004 College Art Association Distinguished Teaching of Art Award, and was the first African American professor tenured by the Yale School of Art. Documentation of his pedagogy and art is not accessible to the public, but his innovative curriculum and unique studio culture have influenced the teaching and creative practices of generations. He also taught many students who did not pursue art or design but gained a visual literacy—an understanding of art and the built environment—that became a fundamental lens for their understanding the world.

The Robert Reed Drawing Workshops will expose a diverse group of college-level visual art and design students to an innovative drawing curriculum, curate the work of Robert Reed, and disseminate scholarship about his pedagogy at Penn State, Palmer Museum of Art, Hunter College MFA Studios, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Composed of lectures, discussions, and workshops, the curriculum will be based on Reed’s pedagogy and primarily taught by his former students and colleagues. There will also be accompanying exhibitions of his work and teaching archives.

And it just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t make a lot of drawings in the process.
