Keen to practice your sketching and observation skills in a relaxed environment? Connect with your choice of art in a BYO drawing encounter, every Friday lunchtime.

Set in the Gallery spaces, you are invited to bring your own drawing materials (dry media only please), grab a stool and find a space to be inspired by our life model. Artist and observational drawing tutor, Abbey Lyman will be on hand to offer guidance – all from a safe social distance!

These drawing sessions are suitable for everyone – from complete beginners to accomplished artists. All welcome. Drop in early though, as places are limited. Please check our website or social channels for updates.

Drop-in Drawing is generously supported by Auckland University of Technology and Gordon Harris The Art & Graphic Store.
