Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, an exuberant piece of Edwardian architecture, was built in 1901 to house both an art collection and Glasgow's old industrial museum, and its eclecticism is part of its appeal; few other museums can offer a stuffed elephant, a Spitfire and an outstanding collection of French Impressionists. Twenty-two collections and over 8000 artefacts, from natural history, armour and weaponry to art from many different eras and touring exhibitions, are all housed in a grand red sandstone building on the banks of the River Kelvin. There are interactive exhibits, talks, events and regular free recitals on the Kelvingrove organ.

Glasgow Life Drawing and Sketching

This group is for anyone who likes to draw. Unlike other artists like musicians, actors or dancers… people who like to create drawings often do so alone. Once finished they tend to hide their sketch pad somewhere and few people get the pleasure of seeing their work. There's nothing wrong with that but it could also be a…
