The Drawing Lab

For Leonardo da Vinci, drawing was a way of thinking on paper. It was an essential tool that not only helped him to visualise and progress his ideas for future artworks, but also to understand the world around him more broadly. Drawing forced him to look more closely, to explore, and to test the boundaries of his knowledge.

Taking this approach as a starting point, The Drawing Lab explores the richness and variety of drawing in its many different forms. The Lab features works by artists past and present, including museum visitors, selected with the aim of stretching the idea of what drawing is and the many ways that it can be used.

Joining us is artist in residence, Emma J. Lance. Inspired by the work of Leonardo, Emma’s drawings are being made directly onto the gallery walls in collaboration with visitors to the space. Whether you are a complete beginner or a Leonardo in the making, we’re inviting you to take part.
