Draw our Thanksgiving centrepiece

Drop-in drawing activity with Contempo

The three-day feast that took place in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1621 is commonly referred to as the origin of the American Thanksgiving holiday. It is said that about 53 Pilgrims and 90 Wampanoag Native Americans celebrated the harvest with a feast of venison, corn, shellfish, roasted meat and cranberries. With the addition of turkey, many of these same foods still find a place at the Thanksgiving table today.

Join us at our Thanksgiving table here at the Gallery and try your hand at drawing our harvest-themed centrepiece display.

Materials are provided – just drop-in and have a go!
