Great visit to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. Really engaging, good stories, clear interactives, some beautiful displays and lots to intrigue me. Also seemed very family friendly.

Had a good visit to the Alfred Denny Museum this morning, with a introductory tour from a brilliant Science Communications student. She pitched her talk really well for the mixed audience of kids and adults - with some weird and wonderful facts, and lots of enthusiasm.. It is a fab little place, just one room tucked away in the University. I think because of the size of it, I really looked at what was there and didn't feel there was lot more to rush off and see. LOTS of photos of the specimens if you click on the crazy slide below... http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/alfred-denny-museum

The Sheffield Tap was a top place to host a Drawing the Summer event in 2014. Good beer + lovely surroundings + relaxing afternoon drawing = win! https://flic.kr/s/aHsjZLTdWD

As part of Drawing the Summer, I invited Tramlines Gig Poster artists Jo Peel and Tom J Newell to do some live drawing in the Avenue at the Millennium Gallery. They inspired lots of people to pick up a pencil and do a beer mat doodle! https://flic.kr/s/aHsk1968D2

This was one of my favourite sessions for the Drawing the Summer programme. Kerry Lemon was a brilliant facilitator and did some gorgeous patterns on the window at the Millennium Gallery. We had people of all ages joining in and had a lot of laughs! https://flic.kr/s/aHsk2XBwGV

Inspired by the exhibition Lucian Freud Portraits, the Gallery was transformed into an art studio for Draw the Line which included life drawing classes led by Freud’s model Sophie de Stempel and another with Nicola Bateman, one of Freud’s muses, as the model. The full programme is here: http://www.npg.org.uk/assets/files/pdf/lateshift/DrawtheLineProgramme.pdf

I worked with the brilliant Marian Deuchar to create a sketchbook tour of the NPG which you can find here: http://www.npg.org.uk/assets/files/pdf/lateshift/draw_the_line.pdf

We invited conceptual artist Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds to occupy the NPG for one night to explore language, memory and history. Edgar Heap of Birds is an artist from the Cheyenne and Arapaho Nations of Oklahoma. The event was in response to the NPG exhibition George Catlin: American Indian Portraits.  https://www.flickr.com/photos/natportraitgallery/sets/72157633542616967
