In collaboration with Heroica Theatre Company, artists from The Thrive Archive have created a workshop in tandem with the promenade production of the new play Joan Eardley, A Private View.
Despite the lure of ‘thruppence’ for the cinema or a new comic to read, Joan Eardley’s young models found it difficult to hold a pose for long. She had to work fast – and if you have ever tried to draw your children or your grandchildren, you will understand the challenges Joan faced trying to capture a fleeting expression or a shy smile.
Join artists from The Thrive Archive for a 90-minute workshop ‘After Eardley’ and explore the joy of drawing portraits of children at speed. Simply bring a photo of a ‘wee one’ to inspire you and an old shirt or apron to wear. The 90-minute workshops are free and we provide all the materials. The workshop will be completed in time to enjoy dinner from our pre-theatre menu in advance of the production.
There are 15 places available. To book your free place, please contact Scott Byrne at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01241 656124
The Thrive Archive is a creative community research project set up by collaborative artist Jan Bee Brown with story at its heart.
