10am - 4pm.
Ages 16+ (children welcome with an accompanying adult)
Exploring socially distanced one-to-one drawing and how the period of the pandemic has changed people’s lives, Applied Live Art has been touring the UK in a camper van collecting hundreds of drawings from people all over the country, creating a visual archive that tells the story and experiences of the last year and a half.
This outdoor drawing workshop is about telling visual stories through symbols and marks that are expressive and narrative. The artist will guide you through a combination of talking, sharing and drawing.
