Drawing Session: House of Birds

Taking inspiration from the Society of Wildlife Artists Annual Exhibition, The Natural Eye, we are delighted to welcome back Ballet Central for this special evening of drawing as part of the Museums at Night Festival.

Wearing feather wings and bustles, costumes from Kenneth MacMillan’s House of Birds, the dancers will perform class at the barre and hold extended poses.

House of Birds is based on the Grimm Brothers' macabre fairytale, Jorinda and Joringel, and was part of the repertoire for the 2019 Ballet Central tour.

Ballet Central is Central School of Ballet’s renowned graduate performing company.

Our Drawing Sessions are a great chance to sketch, whether you are a seasoned artist or a first-timer. Bring along your sketchbook and pencils, if you don't have any there are free drawing materials generously provided by Winsor & Newton.

If you don't fancy picking up a pencil, these events are perfect for those of you who love popping in to have an informal chat about art with other visitors and members of the Mall Galleries team.
