Spend a day working alongside artist Adrian Dutton, looking at how artistic endeavour is influenced by other cultures, as you’re expertly guided throughout this hands-on drawing workshop.

You'll start the day with a drawing session amid the African sculptures in Room 25.

In the afternoon, you'll move to the British Museum's art studios to examine the work of artists such as Picasso, Matisse and Modigliani, making a series of drawings from projections of key relevant pieces by these artists.

We conclude the day with a private access drawing session, re-examining the African exhibits in Room 25 in the light of what we have learned. We will also spend time reflecting on the sophistication of African art, in particular, The Head of Ife.

All materials and refreshments are provided.
