Draw for life: Painted zoo

Date and time

Thursday 1 June, 11am–3.30pm

Pigott Education Centre Foyer

Karly Allen


£40 per child. Advance booking essential.

The National Gallery collection is a fabulous painted zoo filled with wild, domesticated, and invented animals which stand perfectly still for us to study them!

Enjoy examining and drawing the structure and proportions of different animals, and experiment with colour and mark-making, from feathered wings to patterned fur.

Children must attend the course for the whole day. Adults must drop off and pick up their children from the Gallery. Signed guardian consent is required.
