Drop-in Drawing

Draw inspiration from artists and original works of art! Observe through drawing and respond to creative challenges in the galleries.

Open to visitors of all ages. Materials are provided, but you may bring your own sketchbook; pencils only. The number of participants is limited depending on gallery locations. You will be asked to offer up your spot if others are waiting. Demonstrations repeat every 30 minutes.

All Drop-in Drawing sessions are free with Museum admission, and do not require reservations unless otherwise noted. For information about group visits, see Group Visits.
