Keen to practice your sketching and observation skills in a relaxed environment? Be inspired by a life model in an open drawing encounter, every Friday lunchtime on the Mezzanine floor.

Set in the Gallery spaces, you are invited to bring your favourite drawing materials (dry media only please) or use the materials provided, grab a stool and find a space to be inspired by what you see. Artist and observational drawing tutor, Abbey Lyman will be on hand to offer guidance.

These drawing sessions are suitable for everyone – from complete beginners to accomplished artists. All welcome. Drop in early though, as places are limited.

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