National Drawing Day 2020
National Drawing Day encourages people to get drawing, and for the very first time, it is taking place in people’s homes.
This Saturday, we will be asking you to ‘Go big and stay home’ while we will bring the joy of drawing to you.
On Saturday 16th May at 2.30pm, artist Hannah Ferguson will take over our Facebook Live to create a study of objects from our museum collection in 30 minutes. The focus will be on colour, texture, and the joy of drawing. Tune in and perhaps you will be inspired to lift a paintbrush or a pencil and draw a selection of museum worthy objects from your home?
We will also be launching a drawing competition for kids. The winner will receive a years’ worth of confectionery, based on Second World War rations of 2 oz. per week (6 lb. 8 oz.) Further details coming soon.
