Celebrate The Big Draw at the Corinium Museum on Saturday, 14th October and delve into the world of archaeological illustration.
The Big Draw is a national campaign designed to get everyone drawing. It proves that drawing can be a public activity as well as a private interest.
More than 1,000 venues across the UK, from great national institutions to village halls, will be joining in to offer people of all ages the chance to discover that drawing is exciting, liberating and something that is fun for everyone.
This year the Museum, in Cirencester, will have an archaeological Illustrator on hand to demonstrate the skills and techniques used for this type of drawing. There will be the opportunity to test your skills by drawing one of the hundreds of beautiful objects on display in the museum.
Museum Education Officer Amanda Hart said: “One of the best outcomes of the Big Draw is seeing the Museum filled with families finding out about archaeology but having fun - and maybe trying something new!”
The museum will be open from 10am-5pm and drawing will be going on throughout the day. This event is included in the price of admission and free to annual season ticket holders.
