Sue Williams invites you to meet Gwen John, joined during the evening by Rodin and David Alston. Discover the personal dialogues underlyingthese artists’ work.

Sue Grayson Ford, Campaign for Drawing Director comments, ''Each artist has shown enormous enthusiasm to make this event memorable. I am sure that participants will find their enthusiasm contagious - whether beginners or expert drawers. Thanks to STAEDTLER and Fabriano this is also an opportunity to experiment with first-rate materials.'' 

Eleri Evans of National Museum Wales said, “We’ve always supported the Big Draw here at National Museum Cardiff and hold drawing activities annually for children so we’re delighted to host something a little different for adults. This is a wonderful opportunity for people to participate in a creative and imaginative way and engage with well known artists in the fantastic surroundings of the Impressionist and Modern Art galleries.”

Tickets for the evening cost £25 and are only available from www.bigdrawshop.co.uk
