• National Drawing Day 2020

    For many years, Butler Gallery has held the largest outdoors National Drawing Day event in Ireland. For the very first time in 2020, National Drawing Day is taking place in people’s homes. An initiative of the National Gallery of Ireland, supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, National Drawing Day encourages people to get drawing on Saturday 16 May 2020. Asking the public to ‘Go big and stay home’, the National Gallery and dozens of partner venues, including Butler Gallery, will bring the joy of drawing to homes across the country through online platforms.

    We have two exciting initiatives for National Drawing Day Go Big and Stay Home in 2020.
