Everybody Draw – Online with Old Bank Residency

Ben Williams, Managing Editor
Fiona Finchett

7 April — 19 May 2020 Entrance is free — Book now

Old Bank Residency are reacting amazingly to the ongoing situation we’re all facing, no more so than with this online drawing session. A perfect way to spend some time in isolation.

Like Bob Ross but weirder, more interactive, and with terrible production values.

You’ll need a pencil (or any other mark-making device), a surface to draw on, and – most importantly – an open mind!
