The Big Draw 2015

Yesterday I led The Big Draw event at The Museum of East Asian Art, Bath. 

This unique museum houses a fine collection of ceramics, jades, bronzes and much more from China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia.  The Museum of East Asian Art is the only museum in the UK solely dedicate to arts and cultures of East and Southeast Asia. 

Visitors were told about the fascinating collection.
How difficult it is to carve jade. Where some of the museum objects were discovered, including a junk shop in Australia! And how to distinguish different Buddhas.

Here are some of the drawings made on the day in response to studying objects and learning their individual stories. The drawings are exhibited in the museum for the month.
