A Life Figure Drawing Workshop After Edgar Degas via Zoom

Due to the current national security situation, the Museum will be closed to the public, and all activities in physical spaces are postponed until further notice.

We are all going through extremely trying times. In a bid to help, however modestly, we continue to offer, for the second week running, an hour of respite, by providing captivating lectures and encounters every day, free of charge, via Zoom.

We invite you, the culture-loving public, to enjoy an hour of curiosity.

We wish everyone days of peace.
