For the second time during the National Museum Weekend in the Netherlands, various museums and art centres from the province of Limburg participated in the Campaign for Drawing project by developing and putting into practice numerous workshops and drawing activities for children as well as for adults.
During this workshop participants had the chance to learn how to make drawing templates on the basis of short assignments through which they could create and design their own templates or draw motives such as flowers or leaves which are usually used by the architect Pierre Cuypers in his work.
Het Cuypershuis – Pierre Cuypersstraat 1, 6041 XG Roermond, The Netherlands
Saturday 14 April 2012
Templates workshop for adults 12.00h - 13.00h Templates workshop for children 13.30h - 14.30h
The workshops were part of the Campaign for Drawing project in the province of Limburg, The Netherlands. The workshops had the purpose of involving the public during the National Museum Weekend in drawing activities through which they could learn about the Het Cuypershuis and at the same time be creative and get inspired in their templates by the work of Pierre Cuypers.
The final results proved that the workshops were a total success, as a great part of the public joined the workshops. A further collaboration between the Het Cuypershuis and the Het Centrum voor de Kunsten Roermond, in creating and putting into practice future drawing activities, is expected during the next National Museum Weekend.
