Sketching in the Gallery

Sketching and drawing are permitted in the Gallery with the following guidelines:

  • Please be conscious of other people, and move aside if someone wishes to view the painting you are sketching
  • Maintain a physical distance and wear a mask at all times
  • Sketchbooks or notepaper should be no larger than A3 size
  • Spend no more than 10 minutes in front of any painting
  • You may be asked to move along to another painting or room if we are particularly busy
  • No sketching is permitted in doorways or access routes
  • Painting and use of materials other than pencils is only permitted under the Copyist Scheme.

Why not try one of our online creative sessions? Plus we have plenty of ideas for arty projects to try at home here.
