Mid-Week Draw Online: Week 2

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

Every Wednesday afternoon our Museum Support Officer Beth organises the Mid-Week Draw in Museum Lab at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.

Last week we decided to move the Draw online, so those of you at home who wanted to continue drawing objects from our collections could do so. Beth has chosen a new selection for this week and has drawn them herself to inspire you to do the same. Take a look.


Draw Artists

We are very pleased to see that some of you have taken part in our online Mid-Week Draw, here are some of the fantastic works that have been sent in.


I chose the great green bug and used water colours! – Lauren


Join In

If you are tempted to have a go, please share your drawings with us, we would love to see them. Email them to Beth at Tweet @BrightonMuseums or if you are uploading them to Facebook with pride, share the url in the comments section below.

Come back next Wednesday to see what new objects Beth has chosen.

Other alternative ideas, in case you want something different or additional to draw:

  • Sketch your hands in different positions (or holding an object). Draw your feet
  • Draw an old pair of shoes
  • A simple object from nature, such as a pine cone
