National Drawing Day 2020 - Virtual Workshops
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 at The Dock, we celebrated a Drawing Day like no other...
Despite the nationwide restrictions on travel and gathering, at The Dock, we decided that we would of course go ahead with celebrating National Drawing Day in as best a way as we could. Like every year, we wanted to encourage all ages to explore all the different possibilities of drawing, and this time, from the comfort of our homes or gardens.
Our education artists David Smith, Anna Leask, and Wayne O'Connor prepared videos for participants, suggesting ideas about what we can all can do to create amazing original drawings.
Using the #NationalDrawingDay tag we asked participants to tag their own creations, should they choose to put their finished work on social media so everyone could see that despite all, we are still being creative and having fun!
