Throughout the month of October we will be partnering with illustrator Nick Ellwood to deliver a series of drawing and art workshops for children aged 7 -12.

Part of The Big Draw, the world's biggest celebration of drawing, Nick’s workshops will get children seeing and thinking about their world through the lens of an artist. Using the Old Royal Naval College grounds and stunning Painted Hall as inspiration, the workshops will incorporate a range drawing skills. As well as illustrating our marvellous family trail, Nick’s illustrations have also featured in The Guardian, on book covers and in exhibitions all over the UK.
