Experimenting with Charcoal

Saturday 1 June

10:30am – 12:30pm

Bethlem Gallery studio


Join us to experiment with charcoal. Inspired by the work of exhibiting artist John O’Donnell, we will be working with texture, movement, tone and pattern. There will be a series of quick exercises before moving on to drawing a portrait model in charcoal. Please bring an apron or clothes you don’t mind getting messy.

No previous art experience necessary, all welcome. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult. Concessions are available for SLAM service users, people over 60, students, people on Job Seekers Allowance, people registered disabled and their carers.

If you are unable to attend the workshop, please contact us to cancel your place. We often have a waiting list.
