An all-ages celebration of drawing to mark the opening weekend of the Ackland’s newest exhibition, Drawn to Life: Master Drawings from the Age of Rembrandt in the Peck Collection at the Ackland Art Museum. Events include:

The Living Line: watch as animator Stella Rosalie Rosen, MFA ’22, brings pieces from Drawn to Life into conversation with one another through frame-by-frame animation using graphite on paper. Viewers will see how the images are animated in real time under a camera, as the camera’s visual feed is projected on the wall. The end result will be a short film incorporating imagery from the exhibition as it was originally perceived by the artists — moving through time and vibrating with life.

Sketching in the Galleries: all are invited to learn the fundamentals of classical drawing at drop-in drawing stations in the galleries with instructor Daniel Hammer, artist and Ackland Drawing for Tweens teacher.

  • F.A.M. Activity Kits: pick up an art kit with drawing supplies to use in the galleries or take home with you! Available beginning Sept 25 and while supplies last.
