Join practising artists at pop-up stations in the Museum for fun experimental drawing activities for all the family.

Be inspired by Michelangelo – the subject of the new exhibition – and use pencils, pens and paper to make artworks to take home, or contribute to large group artworks. You can work at a small or a large scale and our artists will be on-hand with techniques for you to try out. No experience needed.

This event is part of the public programme supporting the exhibition Michelangelo: the last decades (2 May – 28 July 2024).
