Description

National Drawing Day - Drawing the Everyday

To mark this year's National Drawing Day on Saturday 18th May, Highlanes Gallery is delighted to present, Drawing the Everyday. In addition to this, a second session will take place one month later on Saturday 15th June, taking place from 10.30am-1.30pm each day.

Presented by artist Dorothy Smith, National Drawing Day hopes to provide a structure for people to come together to draw. Drawing as an activity is often undertaken in private spaces and so working drawings and people in the act of drawing are seldom seen.

Drawing the Everyday will provide a convivial space which will tap into an often latent or sometimes hidden interest in drawing, as well as an interest in the historic and current townscape of Drogheda.

The focus on the built environment of Laurence Street will tie in with the current exhibition of images of Drogheda from Highlanes Gallery's Municipal Art Collection, presented on the Upper Gallery.

An event for everyone, while primarily aimed towards adults, children are more than welcome to attend. All those who attend may bring and supply their own materials, however pencils, paper, and limited seating will be available at Highlanes Gallery.

Refreshments will be provided for all participants, if weather permits, and will be offered within the covered forecourt during the event.

At the conclusion of the event, with permission from participants, drawings can be photographed along with their creators to be displayed through Highlanes Gallery's official website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Works can also be left with the gallery and hung in the temporary Drawing Room, from the 1st of May to 29th of June.

Places are priced at €2.50 per participant, with a special ticket covering both May 18th & June 15th available for €4.
