Exciting summer of drawing

Architectural Drawing with RSH+P Trajans column V&A


It’s all about drawing and telling stories with pencil and paper this summer at the V&A.

We’ve got activities for children and families every day of the week from Monday 4th – Friday 29th August and we’d love it if you came and joined us.

During the week from Monday – Friday, we’ll be in the garden (weather permitting!) with The Imagination Station drawing activity designed by Exhibition Road Drawing Resident, artist Liam O’Connor. You’ll be able to record your family’s journey across the Museum and add it to a sculptural column. For more information go to the What’s On page.

The Imagination Station activity is inspired by the cast of Trajan’s Column in the Cast Courts. When I was doing some research in preparation for the activity I found out that the original in Rome was 3.83 meters in diameter and 38 meters high. A truly amazing feat of art and engineering.

On Sunday’s we’ll be continuing the theme of drawing with Drop-in Design, Architectural Drawing workshops with staff from Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. You can create architectural drawings on large sheets of paper and learn about the skills of drawing buildings and spaces. For more information please go to the What’s On page.

You can also see what else we’ve got on in our families e-newsletter.
