Make and create

Learn how to take your pencil for a walk, and other ways to draw from nature, in this online art tutorial with Bethan Durie.

Be inspired by Van Gogh’s famous ‘Sunflowers’. Sketch something from nature you find on your daily walk, or plants and flowers you may have around the house. All you need to take part is a pencil and paper.

Did you know Van Gogh originally painted the ‘Sunflowers’ for his friend, the artist Paul Gauguin, to welcome him to his home as if he was giving him a big bunch of flowers? You could decorate your home with your creations, like Van Gogh, or turn your drawing into a card to send to someone you are thinking of.

Part of a series of ‘Make and create’ videos suitable for the whole family.

This event is open to the public.
