Grundy Art Gallery and Abingdon studios are pleased to announce a new programme of drawing workshops for artists at all stages of their career.
The fortnightly sessions will explore traditional and contemporary approaches to drawing, and enable the participants to refresh and build on their practical skills using a wide range of media.
A series of eight workshops will take place at Grundy Art Gallery on the first Monday of every month, and at Abingdon studios on the third Monday of every month between June and September 2015.
There are 10 spaces available, and artists are now invited to book on to the programme to secure a place -? first ensuring that they are able to attend the sessions mapped out below.
The workshop sessions are free of charge and all materials are provided, with an invitation to donate small change to cover the costs.
