A large chunk of the population has found themselves with more at-home time on their hands at the moment. If you’re not already an accomplished knitter and you don’t have a garden, you may be at a loss for what to do with said time. It pains me to say it, but there are only so many times you can watch Netflix's Tiger King.
For those looking to turn their self-isolation into self-improvement, the NGV has launched online drawing classes to turn you into Australia’s next top draughtsman. The gallery has taken its existing Drop-by Drawing program and upgraded it for online.
The four-part virtual series will see Victorian artists like Minna Gilligan, Lily Mae Martin and Kenny Pittock showing you how to draw using step-by-step instructions. They’ll also share some of their favourite works from the NGV’s respectable collection.
The classes are free to join and start Sunday, April 5. The classes will be uploaded at 9.30am on each day, and will remain on the NGV Channel indefinitely. Dig out your sketchbook, a pencil and head over to the NGV Channel to take part.
