Myth Personas: Visual Poems with Holly Hunter

Inspired by the ink drawing The Death of the Children of Niobe by Conrad Martin Metz, in our prints and drawings collection, this workshop aims to bring voice to lesser known characters in Greek Mythology through playful interpretation.

Artist and writer Holly Hunter will guide you through a series of drawing and writing exercises to create poetic visual responses to this incredible artwork.

Holly will encourage you to let go of preconceived ideas about ‘the right way’ to interpret art, and to trust your personal responses!

This event took place on Wednesday 18 November, 6.30 – 7.30pm. Watch the recording:


You can see ‘The Death of the Children of Niobe’ in our display ‘Changing Shapes: Metamorphosis in Art’ until 31 January 2021.
