Taking into consideration the individual and collective safety of all involved, enjoy exploring what it means to draw from life with regional artist Jill Price. Welcoming all levels of experience, Price will facilitate a series of virtual drawing activities that allow participants to observe and translate the bodies of living things in new ways. Each workshop will begin with an introduction to new artists, providing inspiration as participants explore dynamic ways of expressing light, shape, space, texture and movement from the comfort of their own home. Don’t worry, Jill will still allow time for a group tea and snack before heading into some independent drawing time and sharing work with others.
Participants are encouraged to have a good working knowledge of Zoom. A link will be provided by email prior to start of the programme.
