The State Library has a rich collection of original artworks and other art related items. From framed oil paintings, such as those featured in the new Paintings Gallery, to sketchbooks which reveal an insight into the creative process, to elaborate artists' books where the book itself in a work of art. This special two-day program will take you on an "artist's eye" journey of the Library's collections through a mixture of inspirational presentations, curated gallery tours and discussions. Participants will also get a rare opportunity to do some hands-on sketching inside the historic Mitchell Library Reading Room as well as in the Library's new gallery spaces. Lunch is provided on both days, so there will be an opportunity for informal discussion and sharing between participants.

This program runs over two days, purchasing a ticket guarantees you admission for both days.
