A new twist on a popular program! We are taking Sketching in the Gallery outside from July 30 through to August 28, 2020.

On Thursdays and Fridays, from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., weather permitting, you can take part in observational sketching in the Ondaatje courtyard with an artist. You will be provided with a sketching kit which will be pre-made and available in the courtyard. It includes a recyclable drawing board, bull-dog clip, sheets of sketching paper and a small pencil.

This program will extend beyond the courtyard because you can keep all the materials and continue to develop your drawing skills at home.
