The Campaign for Drawing is best known for its annual October Big Draw programme, but this year the traditional month-long festival of family activities is being extended with a new initiative called Come Draw with Me!

Aimed squarely at adults who want to flex their drawing muscles a brace of events in November at National Museum Cardiff and National Museum of Scotland offers a unique evening of creativity and discovery in the company of five national artists.

Participants will be able to share in the experts’ inspiration to try and unlock, refresh and develop their drawing skills and the host venues will also be providing privileged access to their world-famous collections as well as the chance to wind down with the artists over refreshments.

Sponsors STAEDTLER are even stumping up a goody bag of art materials for each participant.

November 8, National Museum Cardiff 6.00-8.30pm
Choose a workshop led by Brendan Stuart Burns, Laura Ford, Marega Palser, Stephen West or Sue Williams in the Impressionist and Modern Art galleries.
Tickets £25 (includes refreshments and drawing materials)

November 21, National Museum of Scotland 6.00-8.30pm
