National Gallery of Ireland: National Drawing Day 2020

Sat 16 May, 10:00am

National Drawing Day, Virtual Workshops at The Dock

Every year, the National Gallery of Ireland—together with dozens of museums, galleries, libraries and cultural organisations all over the island of Ireland—encourages people to get drawing with a jam-packed day of free events for people of all ages. This year we celebrate a Drawing Day like no other, and we're excited!

The Dock is delighted to be part of this celebration each year.

We want to encourage all ages to explore all the different possibilities of drawing from the comfort of your home or garden. Our education artists David Smith, Anna Leask and Wayne O'Connor prepared their videos below for ideas on what you can do to create your own amazing drawings. 

Make sure to tag your own creations so everyone can see all of the nationwide creativity and have fun!

Stay in touch with us on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages, and don't forget to follow the hashtag #NationalDrawingDay on the day.
