Presented in partnership with the Manitoba Museum

Draw wildlife and artifacts displayed throughout the Manitoba Museum’s nine immersive galleries. From the Arctic to the Prairies, discover a wide variety of potential subjects, conveniently located under one roof. Best of all: they stay still!

Manitoba Museum staff will kick things off with a short presentation about the making of the Elk Diorama. A selection of taxidermized animals will be brought out and directions to key points of interest provided. This will be followed by unstructured time to sketch. At the conclusion of the program, the group will come back together to share.

Bring your own materials. Dry media only (pens, pencils, charcoal) to ensure the preservation of the exhibits. Stools and folding chairs will be provided. Note that there are two program times to accommodate more participants: 12-3 pm and 1-4 pm. Admission includes the Museum Galleries only, not the Science Gallery.
