Drawing Workshop with Hipkiss & Graney

The Lines that Connect Us

Sunday 8 August, 2 – 3.30pm (also on Wednesday 4 August)

Free; online via Zoom

When we draw, we deconstruct and we contemplate. The act of drawing lets us see how we would like to shape the world…

Explore Making a Mark, our summer exhibition of Dutch and Flemish drawings, with Birmingham-based artist duo, Hipkiss & Graney. These online workshops will allow us to come together to explore artists of the past, whilst unlocking our own ways of making a mark. Throughout the workshop, we will deconstruct a drawing, reimagining it with our own drawn self-portraits.

These workshops are open to anyone; no previous experience or skills are required. Please just bring yourself and your drawing tools of choice!

This workshop will be hosted online via Zoom, with the link to join being shared in advance via email. To help create an informal and social Zoom space, these workshops will not be recorded. Spaces are limited.

This event is free; donations are welcome:
