A chance for the whole family to get drawing, everywhere! Using the gallery building (inside and out) as your inspiration, join in with our activities for this year's Big Draw.
Families visiting the event will be able to:
Create their own balloon face, which will then greet visitors and passers-by from the railings outside the gallery.
See artist Claire Weetman’s specially commissioned installation that will adorn the glass walls of the gallery’s lifts.
Help artist Claire Weetman decorate Manchester Art Gallery! Brightly coloured chalk pens will be provided to paint onto the glass windows on the top of the gallery, with the cityscape of Manchester providing an inspirational backdrop to the artwork.
Fashion their own accessories. Clear umbrellas and rain ponchos will be provided for visitors to decorate and take away. Manchester will never be dull on a rainy day again thanks to these fabulous creations.
Create your own landscape pizza in the gallery cafe.
