Adult Workshop | Introduction to Drawing Digital Portraits


[ Workshop )

This event has passed.

Join us in our Studio for a creative digital workshop inspired by Glyn Philpot: Flesh and Spirit.

Bring in a photo of yourself, take a wander through the gallery and our temporary exhibition, Glyn Philpot: Flesh and Spirit, and be inspired to create a unique digital portrait using a tablet.

Led by local illustrator, Diane Dunning, you will delve into digital drawing techniques using pencils, fineliners and watercolours on the MediBang Paint app on a tablet. The end result will be a fun and experimental portrait that shows each participant’s individual personality.


Important Information

Participants will need to bring their own tablet and download the free digital drawing app MediBang Paint programme before the workshop. Please bring a tablet pencil if you have your own or the gallery can provide these for whoever needs one.

The Gallery has a few iPads for the workshop and these will be available on a first come first serve basis. Please contact Holly Riddle on to have this reserved for you on the day.
