Sketching in the Galleries

We will discuss key terms and techniques and will sketch from the artwork in the galleries. Bring your own drawing tools (paper and pencils only, please—no ink or paint).


Public tour of the Gregg Museum

Bring an outdoor picnic for the garden and join a docent-led tour of the Gregg Museum’s current exhibitions, Bob Trotman—Business as Usual, Design Duet—The Creative Lives of Robert Black and Ormond Sanderson, and Our Living Past: Wet Plate Collodion Portraits of Southern Blues Musicians by Tim Duffy.


Tai chi in the Garden

Thursday, June 14, 6pm

The Gregg is partnering with NC State’s Confucius Institute to offer a Tai chi class led by Yan Wu, Chinese & Culture Instructor, in the Jackson-Thiem formal garden. Originating from an ancient Chinese martial art, Tai chi has developed as a graceful form of exercise involving a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner accompanied by deep breathing. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that the body is in constant motion to achieve peace and calm. Space is limited. Please register at


Yoga in the Garden

Thursday, June 28, 6pm

In partnership with its Hillsborough Street neighbors, the Alexander Family YMCA, the Gregg Museum offers yoga in its Jackson-Thiem formal garden. Bring a mat or beach towel and plan to strike poses amidst the pollinators, while enjoying the flowers of early summer.
