Portraits with Jane Frederick
Firstsite, Colchester 29th July 2017 10.30-4pm
Following the success of Painting Portraits workshop which formed part of the B.P.Portrait Award programme, I am pleased to announce that I have been invited to deliver a new Portrait workshop at Firstsite Gallery in Colchester, Essex.
This practical workshop will reflect upon the work in Lubaina Himid: Warp and Weft and the themes of belonging and contribution. Using a range of wet and dry drawing techniques, participants will learn to work from their own photographs and broaden their drawing skills through a series of practical exercises whilst working on a variety of different scales. Participants will be exploring real and given identities presented in historical photographs, unearthing our own heritage and that of undisclosed people from archival images.
