People of all ages who are interested in drawing, particularly beginners, will find inspiration and ideas in this resource.
The kit has an additional focus on the artists and artworks in the Dobell Australian Drawing Collection at the Art Gallery of NSW – on tour in the Contemporary Australian drawing exhibition. It includes video interviews and links to related resources on the Gallery website, including our prizes database.
