Looking closely at the work of Gwen John, this workshop, led by artist Rachel Grigor, aims to reconsider possibilities for portraiture today. Working from a model, you will look at ways to employ symbolic and characteristic information as well as a more contemporary approach to mark-making and composition. A final portrait using mixed media will be done from a series of drawings. Open to ages 18+ Places must be booked in advance by calling the Box Office.
