The Drawing Room explores the range of possibilities within contemporary drawing practice. This session is part of a cultural programme jointly organised by National Galleries of Scotland and National Library of Scotland in the run-up to the COP26 conference in Glasgow. Artist Katharine Aarrestad will lead a session visualising how Scotland is impacted by the climate and ecological emergency. You will enter into the future reimagining your own home, garden, favourite walk or a beloved view to create imaginary maps, plans, routes of the places you live.

You will need:

  • Paper Sharpies/ fine liners/ felt tips /crayons/ pencils (colour or black and white)
  • Tracing paper (optional)
  • Your imagination, however dystopian, fanciful or optimistic!

You can share your artworks with screenshots or after the session photographing them at home and submitting them to be displayed on the National Galleries of Scotland website during COP26.

This session is for adults and is suitable for ages 12+.

A Zoom link and brief will be sent to participants before the session.
