Virtual Spirits and Sketches:

Playing Around with Size and Scale

Let’s gather (virtually) for a low-pressure, high-fun session of drawing! Manager of Family Programs and Accessibility Amanda Harmer will help you get inspired by our permanent collection to investigate size and scale. No previous drawing experience necessary and all skill levels are welcome. Grab your cocktail or mocktail (suggested drink below) and draw together! 

This online event is $5 for members and $8 for future members.

Supplies for this session: 

  • Mark-making tool(s): pencil, Sharpie marker, and/or colored pencils 
  • Paper or sketchbook (2-4 pieces)
  • Items or photos of items that might make fun, contrasting drawings
    • Since we are playing with size and scale, include items that are typically small and typically large. For instance, you could bring a sewing needle and an elephant figurine–though the figurine might be small, the animal is large. Items that could tell an interesting story together will make for a fun drawing experience!
