Join artist Agnes Treherne on a wander through the streets of Chichester and channel the spirit of Gwen John as you craft your own drawings and watercolours.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced artist, this workshop is designed to ignite your creativity and deepen your understanding of Gwen John’s urban landscapes. Led by the artist Agnes Treherne, you’ll delve into Gwen John’s early drawing studies, which served as the foundation for her remarkable works.
Step into the streets of Chichester as Agnes guides you to capture the essence of your surroundings through drawing.
