Date: Thursday 4 October 2018, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Venue: York Art Gallery

This workshop, inspired by The BFG in Pictures, will introduce you to some simple, creative and playful ways of making drawings without using the traditional pencil on white paper.

We’ll help to get you started so you can enjoy the experience of having a go and seeing what happens. We will do a series of quick drawings using different techniques, then you can choose your favourite technique for your own drawing.

The event is £5 per person and gallery admission applies. Book your tickets here.

About the workshop instructor: Emma Metcalfe is a children’s educational illustrator who likes to bring learning to life with humorous characters. She draws her work by hand using ink and a scratchy dip pen and then adds colour by hand or digitally, or both.
