If you are an arty type then this is one event you should go to. National Gallery run several of these during the year and event dates are available on their website.
The event involves a group tour of selected paintings at the gallery. The artist leading the tour lectures the group on the technique used and a bit on the painting's history. Then we were instructed to sketch the painting using s variety of different methods. The idea is more to understand the technique and really see the paintings in depth. So amazing.
You don't need much for the tour just a pencil and sketchbook but bring along a sharpener - I needed it after 1 hr!
The tour lasts 1.5 hr and stools are provided.
It is a really unique experience and I highly recommend it!
