Assistant Manager Margaret Vaughan will lead several hour-long tours of the Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum sculpture collection. Six sculptures throughout the galleries will be chosen for discussion and drawing. Vaughan will first go over the concept of “blind contour drawings” and outfit the group with paper, pencils and clipboards. When the group enters the galleries, she will point out specific sculptures and invite participants to engage in a short (three-minute) blind contour drawing while she talks about the work. The tour will end with a longer (10-minute) drawing of a sculpture of their choice. Tours are scheduled for the second Thursday of each month during the summer.
Walk-ins are welcome. Suggested $5 donation fee
