Hampshire Cultural Trust’s museums and art centres have joined forces to facilitate FREE art challenges online with our communities. The collections team have dug into the archives and chosen images of special objects held in the Hampshire Cultural Trust Collections to be used as our still life subjects.

Each week on Zoom will focus on a new object, inviting artists to draw, paint and create for an hour - you choose your medium, size and composition. There will be a chance to share your work at the end of the session. 

These online sessions are untutored and are a chance for artists to explore still life with various relics from across Hampshire, from museums such as the Winchester City MuseumHampshire Wardrobe and Milestones Museum.

What you need: Yourself and any art material. Please also see class access information.

Tickets: These sessions are free but we kindly ask for donations if you are able to. The coronavirus crisis has had an impact on all of us. Your support, is needed more than ever so that we can continue offering events throughout lockdown and supporting those in our community who have been most affected. You can donate online upon booking or on Hampshire Cultural Trust's support us page.

Current term:  Tuesday 20 April - 25 May, 10am - 11am
