Spend a day working alongside artist Adrian Dutton exploring how objects of beauty and intricate detail can serve as a means of experiencing the profound - a cornerstone of the artistic process - as you’re expertly guided throughout this hands-on drawing workshop.

You will start the day with a drawing session in the British Museum's magnificent galleries 1 and 2, with their listed floors and majestic ceilings, which house the founding collection of the Museum.

In the afternoon, you'll move to the Museum's art studios,where you can make a study in colour from a Renaissance artwork, to a backdrop of sacred Renaissance choral music.

We then take this richer experience of Renaissance art back into the Waddesdon Bequest room for a private-access drawing session.

All materials and refreshments are provided.
