On Friday, September 14th, the One-Day-Drawing-Estafette will take place in the central hall of Academy Minerva. The Estafette is part of the Allie van Altena Farewell Exhibition with works by teacher Allie van Altena, works by students and alumni of Academy Minerva and other beginning artists and with the results of the Estafette. The project is an Drawing North activity and aims to share ideas, skills and knowledge about drawing. The project consists of two parts: making a relay drawing in one day and / or inserting some (already made) drawings.


For more then 30 years Allie van Altena was a teacher at Academy Minerva and he was/is a great initiator in the field of drawing in the north.

My two Girls with a Gun will will make sure that he says goodbye with a bang!


The project is an activity of Drawing North, a collaboration between Academy Minerva, Museum de Buitenplaats and Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, with the aim to promote drawing in the North.
