Our drawing studio at York Art Gallery is a welcoming space for people to create, learn, and share their artwork. It is a space for people of all ages and skill levels to be inspired by our Season of Drawing exhibitions and have a go at drawing! You can try sketching your surroundings, drawing from reference photos or still-life objects, or experimenting with different mediums such as pencils, markers, or paints.

You can expect a range of drawing materials, equipment and prompts to help boost your creativity. Twice a month we will be joined by experienced drawing artists who will offer guidance, support and super fun ways to get involved. For more info on these activities look at the YAG events page.

Tales from the Trail

Do you know your grocer’s from your greengrocer’s?
Hardware from haberdasher’s?
Confectioner’s from chemist’s? ……. ( hope so!)
Prepare for silliness, stories and urgent shopping with our Kirkgate characters. Pick up a copy of our free Time Travellers Trail at the ticket desk so you can get involved too!
Two slightly madcap Victorian characters will be on Kirkgate at various times during the days to interact with each other and with the visitors. Short scenes take place, each concerning a story or a bit of fun about objects to be purchased from the shops of Kirkgate, all belonging within our Time Travellers museum trail.
