Drawing Day — May 16

May 16th is an annual celebration of drawing. We’re celebrating by offering you exercises you can try today or any day.

Learning to draw might be on your social isolation to-do list. Or maybe drawing seems too scary to attempt. If you’ve ever written your name on a piece of paper, you’re prepared to learn to draw. (Download our Drawing Day Booklet for more exercises to try.)

Many people think of drawing as the ability to render realistically. But drawing encompasses many forms of expression.

Drawing though, is a form of communication, a chance to break the rules, a moment to zone out, a safe place to fail, a new place to succeed, and something anyone can do.

Join us here on May 16th for drawing lessons and a downloadable packet filled with exercises. Also check out the other museums celebrating Drawing Day: Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, Clyfford Still Museum, Bakersfield Museum of Art, and Catskill Center.
