The Big Draw Insects

Try your hand at artistic, scientific, and cartoon drawings of insects from our collections. 

Recommended for young entomologists aged 10-14. We’ll be based in the newly-refurbished, historic Westwood room and will be drawing a range of exciting insects from the Museum’s collections. This event is suitable for all abilities from beginners to those who already enjoy drawing frequently.
