People & Places:
Joan Eardley inspired practical drawing workshop
Glasgow Museums online

FREE online event – book at Eventbrite
6 June 2021, 2pm -3.30pm

Joan Eardley had a studio in a coastal village called Catterline, as well as one in the contrasting area of Townhead in Glasgow’s East End. Be prepared to be taken on a tour of Eardley’s drawings and paintings of these two areas via the use of film, still photography and simple mapping. Participants will be inspired to draw the essence of different places and spaces and the people who inhabit them. This informal workshop explores drawing outdoors, with all its contrasting elements and zest.

Led by Glasgow Museums’ art educators, participants will take part in a range of creative activities including fast sketching, sustained drawing and the use of unorthodox drawing materials. Discover new ideas whilst developing your own creativity. Ideal for both beginners and those with some art experience.

Subject matter covered includes cityscapes, seascapes, portraiture, weather and mapping.

A materials list will be provided on the online event page for those who book. The platform used for this online session is Webex.
