As part of the Artweek Auckland 2020 Programme, we are hosting a rolling cast of tutors for an Objectspace drawing party.  Each tutor will suggest different ways of tackling a drawing, with focal points from our exhibition, Deadweight Loss.

Join us for a series of sketching exercises where you can flex your creative and observational drawing skills.  

Materials and hospitality will be provided, register your interest for individual sessions below. This event is subject to change - keep an eye on your email in case of updates.
