BENTON MUSEUM ART COLLECTIVE PROGRAMS 

SKETCHING IN THE GALLERIES: We encourage drawing and sketching in the museum’s galleries.  Come, bring your friends, and be inspired by the original works of art on the wall, the building’s architectural details, people in the galleries…or do your own freeform doodling.

All drawing levels are welcome.
Bring your own sketchbook and dry drawing art supplies or use ours.

Some basic rules to follow when sketching in the galleries:

  • Charcoal and pencil only; materials are available at Visitor Services or individuals may bring their own
  • Sketchbooks should not exceed 11×14 inches
  • The use of pens, colored pencils, oil paints, easels, or watercolors is not allowed
  • Individuals who sketch in the galleries are asked to allow the flow of visitors through the galleries
