Workshop Description: Come and unleash your creativity at this fun portrait-sketching session for grown-ups!

After a quick warm-up challenge, you and your ‘sketchmates’ will take it in turns to pose whilst the rest of the group draw your portrait. Poses will last approx. 5 minutes and you’ll be given a set of fun and experimental prompts to keep things interesting! Picasso-style, non-dominant hand, abstract, Zodiac-inspired, single colour, single line… or you could set your own if you prefer!

NB: This is not a ‘serious’ drawing class – it’s an informal social sketching session that will give you chance to chat, laugh and get creative with others in your community. Your experience of drawing doesn’t matter – it’s a moment to pause, play and experience the joy of sketching for the fun of it.


To participate in this session you will need:

Access to Zoom (ideally on a large screen – e.g. laptop or tablet
A5 or A4 Paper (approx.. 20-25 sheets per participant)
Colourful drawing materials – coloured pencils, felt tip pens etc. (try to avoid graphite pencils)
Something to drink – it’s thirsty work!
