The Tutored Drawing Trip Schedule

The British Museum

4 May : 10am – 1pm : The British Museum

The British Museum houses the famous Elgin Marbles that once graced the fabled Parthenon in Greece. They are beautiful and exquisitely detailed. Drawing allows you to truly understand sculpture and explore it in a mindful way. Join Sheila for this friendly group with the option to picnic in the Great Court.

You will focus on the Parthenon rooms and start with a series of short 10-20 minute drawings of different things. After the break our focus turns to a long drawing..

The Victoria & Albert Museum

18 May : 10am – 1pm : The V&A Museum

The Cast Courts at the Victoria and Albert Museum contain casts of many famous sculptures including Michelangelo’s David, Trajan’s Column, and Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise. These casts are sometimes in
better condition than the originals that may have been damaged by exposure to the elements, or even destroyed. For us it means we can get up close and personal to Michelangelo’s David for instance, without taking a trip to Florence. We can even see his little fig leaf in a separate case which was used to spare Queen Victoria’s blushes. So let’s have an explore and a draw!

Hanwell Zoo

8 June : 10am – 1pm Hanwell Zoo + £4.50 entrance fee

Hanwell Zoo (formerly known as the Bunny park) is a wonderful local resource surrounded by beautiful parkland with a river and a maze before you even pay admittance. It has armadillos, lizards, flamingos, japanese cranes
doing their courthsip dance, meerkats chirruping warnings at planes flying
overhead and three beautiful ring tailed lemurs. It is a great place to take a sketch pad and experiment with the different textures movement and environment of the animals. You have to be quick though!

All you need to join the drawing trips with Sheila is your sketchpad and pencils. We’ll send you details of where to meet us
