Drawing with Colour – Saturday and Sunday

Welcome to the Museum’s School of Art!

Saturday and Sunday, December 16 and 17

9:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m

When we think of drawing, we generally think of images in black, grey and white. Introducing colour into your drawing demands a different mindset, particularly for those of you who might be a little intimidated venturing beyond the challenges of black and white. Offering gentle guidance, this class is for you! In fact, you’ll wonder why you never experimented with colour before.
