FREE workshop exploring drawing portraits of children

The Thrive Archive workshop‘The weans just won’t sit still!’ Despite the lure of thruppence for the cinema or a new comic to read Joan’s young models found it difficult to hold a pose for long. She had to work fast and if you have ever tried to draw your children or your grandchildren you will understand the challenges Joan faced trying to capture a fleeting expression or a shy smile.

Join artists from The Thrive Archive for a 90-minute workshop ‘After Eardley’ and explore the joy of drawing portraits of children at speed. Simply bring a photo of a ‘wee one’ to inspire you and an old shirt or apron to wear. The 90-minute workshops are free and we provide all the materials. more

We can only hope that the clown energy within us keeps us together, reminding us of what is essential… we all are humans despite of where we have been born or raise in the world, our skin colour, religion or gender. more
