Observational Drawing at the Natural History Museum

Observational Drawing at the Natural History Museum

Meet at the Natural History Museum each week and learn to draw through the observation of the Museum’s fascinating collections of fossils, minerals, animals, plants and exotic displays. Experiment with your drawing ability as we explore mark-making, composition and build personal style in response to the inspiring collections. Learn about other artists who use the natural world as inspiration behind their works. Work in a range of mediums including pencil, charcoal, drawing pens and pastels on paper.
