Drop in and draw: Stop, smell and sketch the roses
A free artmaking activity for all ages
Grab a drink and a pencil and join us for a mass drawing workshop, inspired by works in the exhibition Rembrandt and the Dutch golden age: masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum, where our subject is a series of lavish Dutch still lifes — and a string quartet!
Musicians from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music perform alongside sumptuous three-dimensional still-life arrangements containing gorgeous flowers, luscious fruit and elegant glass and metalware.
Our artist educators as well as artists from the Front Up Emerge Program are on hand to provide tips as you sketch a still life, a violin, the musicians or the whole spectacle, while listening to live classical music.
Drop in anytime between 5.30pm and 8.30pm. All levels of ability are welcome and all materials and instruction are provided.
The Emerge Program is an engagement project between the Gallery and Front Up, a Western Sydney based arts and culture program and hub, founded by Ability Options, which supports professional development for artists with disability. This event is part of the Gallery’s celebrations for International Day of People with Disability.
