Visitors in the Drawing Studio

Draw! Get creative in the Drawing Studio

Right in the middle of the exhibition area you would find the drawing studio, where you could try your own hand at drawing flowers. You could also see how 17th and 18th century flower artists worked, allowing you to learn from their methods.

Fresh flowers, drawing tools, and paper were ready for you in the drawing studio. Just like the 17th and 18th century artists featured in the exhibition you had the opportunity to study the flowers in real life before committing your own interpretation to paper.

Unleash your imagination

In the drawing studio you could simply work from your own imagination – or use idea sheets that offer suggestions on e.g. shading and drawing from memory.

You were welcome to take your drawings home – or you could insert them in the new flower albums located in the room.
