Spend a day working alongside artist Adrian Dutton exploring the impact of Japanese art on Western painting as you’re expertly guided throughout this hands-on drawing workshop.

You will start the day with a drawing session in the Museum's newly refurbished Japanese galleries, drawing from its magnificent collection of prints and objects.

In the afternoon, you'll move to the British Museum's art studios to study images by French painters such as Monet and Van Gogh, exploring the influence of Japanese art upon them. This leads into making a portrait, employing some of the methods we have identified.

The day will conclude with a private drawing session in the Japanese Galleries
