Community Groups Online Resources

Here at Durham University Library and Collections we are working to bring our collections to you whilst our venues are closed.

Here are some simple drawing activities to try at home. You don't need any special equipment or art materials – just a pencil and paper.

You can try these activities on your own, or with the people you live with. If you are part of a community group you could use these activities for an online group challenge or project.

So, make a cup of tea, sharpen your pencil and dive into these fun, creative activities.

Why not share your work with us by taking a photo and sharing it on social media? You can find us on:
