Let’s Draw Pets!

18 October @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Draw the park’s statues and imagine if they came to life – what would they say, do and play with?


**Family workshop open to ages 5+. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Booking essential, get your FREE ticket online**


Join Artist-in-Residence Amy J Wilson for an imaginative drawing workshop at The Orangery.

During the workshop, we will draw the park’s Florentine Boar statue and imagine what would happen if it came to life – what would it say, see, eat and play with?

Your drawings will then be brought to life using an app and turned into virtual pets!

We look forward to seeing you there.


Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

**All workshops will take place at The Orangery, Arboretum Park, Derby, DE23 8FN**
