As part of the Big Draw celebration week, join local artists, the Dirar Family, for a chance to take part in a drop-in drawing experience that looks at the theme of journeys. The drawing workshop will be hosted by local emerging artists, the Dirar Family, who create work from their own experiences as former refugees.
The Ferens has a magnificent collection of paintings and sculptures, including works by European Old Masters, portraiture, marine painting, and modern and contemporary British art. Highlights include masterpieces by Lorenzetti, Frans Hals, Antonio Canaletto, Frederick Leighton, Stanley Spencer, David Hockney, Helen Chadwick and Gillian Wearing. With a regular programme of events, guided tours and changing exhibitions, there’s always something new to explore. You can also enjoy refreshments in our popular cafe, Venue Hull.
