A photograph on a fuchsia background of the Manitoba Museum Elk diorama. Next to the MAWA logo on the lower left, text reads, "Drawing at the Museum".

Draw wildlife and artifacts displayed throughout the Manitoba Museum’s nine immersive galleries. From the Arctic to the Prairies, discover a wide variety of potential subjects, conveniently located under one roof. Best of all: they stay still! 

Museum staff will kick things off with a short presentation about the making of the Elk Diorama. A selection of taxidermized animals will brought out and directions to key points of interest provided. This will be followed by unstructured time to sketch. At the conclusion of the program, the group will come back together to share.   

Bring your own materials. Dry media only (pens, pencils, charcoal) to ensure the preservation of the exhibits. Stools and folding chairs will be provided.  

Space is limited and registration is required. Note that there are two program times to accommodate more participants: 12 to 3 pm and 1 to 4 pm. Please meet your guide at the Bison Diorama.
