How to Draw Anything

Book cover final

Saturday, 21 October, 2017

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Remember how you used to draw with confidence and joy as a child? What happened? Why did you stop? This workshop will help you rediscover that natural instinct for expressing yourself through drawing, and along the way you will see how drawing can give clarity to your thoughts, trigger memories, invigorate passions and solve problems.

Lead by Chris Wilson, one of the founding members of Scriberia, and author of \"How to Draw Anything\", this workshop will set out to repair our broken relationship with drawing. It will take drawing out of the art world and put it into your world, introducing you to drawing as a practical tool for everyday life that will change the way you work, think and communicate. No previous drawing experience necessary!!

This workshop is free with museum admission (£7 adults, £5 concessions, £3 students, under 18s free), but you MUST register to secure your spot!

This is a family friendly event.
