Sketchbook Sundays at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery (15th March 2018)

Sketchbook Sundays at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery

Throughout 2018, Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery are offering reduced entry of £2 to anyone who presents a sketchbook at the museum front desk on the first Sunday of the month.

Sketchbook Sunday is part of a wider project in collaboration with Shropshire Libraries Service.

Sketchbooks and journals are usually private; a place to make mistakes, work out ideas. We are very grateful to those who have already agreed to share their work in this form, with the county.
