We meet at 10am inside the Portico entrance. After a quick walk through the chosen rooms that week, each person then splits off to draw whatever takes their fancy.
The group meets at 11.45 to show each other their drawings and share experiences.
The second half of the morning is spent as a group walking around the gallery, having a look at the paintings chosen that morning.
Please bring a sketchbook and drawing materials (please no wet or dusty materials).
