About

Artists have long experimented with mark-making by attaching a pencil or piece of charcoal to a stick to create a drawing tool. 

Join us in Room 32 and take inspiration from the paintings, or even draw from each other, and contribute your gestural line drawings to a large floor-based collaborative work of art. 

Artist Rachel McGiven is present to provide tips and ideas.
