Mid-Week Draw Online

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

Frequent visitors to Brighton Museum will know that on a Wednesday afternoon Museum Lab is transformed into an artistic hub of creativity.

Our Museum Support Officer Beth organises the Mid-Week Draw. We invite people to join us for a few hours to sit in peace and draw objects from our collections. With a different selection of objects each week, often themed, the Mid-Week Draw has become popular with both regular artists, complete beginners or just visitors who drop in as they enjoy the museum.

With the current circumstances of Covid-19, we have decided to move the Draw online, so that our regular artists can continue their creativity and maybe even inspire others to join in and draw. Each week Beth will look though our digitalised collections and choose a few objects to hopefully motivate you pick up a pencil.
She’s started us off this week with her selection and her drawings, 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.



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.

Just in case you’re not inspired by any of these from our collection, here are some other drawing ideas to try at home instead:
  • Draw an object with a single line, not taking your pencil / pen off the page (Beth did the bison as an example)
  • Draw a fruit or vegetable sliced open
  • Combine animals to make your own mythical creature
  • Draw every meal you eat for a week
  • Enjoy it!
