Local artist Jim Kirkwood has been inspiring families to pick up their pencils and draw. Visitors were sketching objects around the museum and creating stories with their pieces.
Today also sees the launch of the UK Coloured Pencil Society exhibition ‘The amazing world of coloured pencil art’. This exhibition displays over 100 pictures demonstrating the amazing artistry that can be achieved through using coloured pencils. Members of the group were in the museum today inspiring visitors with their pencil pallets! ‘The amazing world of coloured pencil art’ runs until 25th November 2012.
