Ink and Drink: Drawing on Nature
Presented by Campaign for Drawing's Big Draw
Free, no need to book, all welcome
Relax and enjoy a sumptuous evening of nature, colour, food and drink. Celebrate beauty in nature and flights of the imagination with illustrators Helen Ward and Niroot Puttapipat as you work with their PICTURAs to gain insight into their artistic processes. Enjoy a harvest feast made from produce grown in the gallery’s roof top garden and botanical drinks. Examine the importance of nature in Thomas Horsfall’s Manchester Art Museum and rarely seen botanical studies from his collection.
PICTURA is a design and illustration company established in Europe in the 1960s. The PICTURA's (colouring books for adults) can be good for your health. Colouring in is said to help you to relax and switch of at the end of a long day, helps to create a greater sense of visual acuity and can be a first step to making your own art by stimulating and unblocking your creativity.
