The workshop will be part of a larger national tour that collects people’s drawings their experiences in the last year to create a visual archive of the times. No experience necessary to participate. The drawing is about telling visual stories through symbols and marks that are expressive and narrative. The artist will guide you through a combination of talking and sharing and drawing.

Participants in past ALAS social drawing workshops have said:

I really enjoyed myself, I didn’t realise so much of what I was thinking and didn’t know how to put it into words or drawings.

The session has helped me regain my self-confidence after my anxiety during this past lockdown.

I was able to see both the positive and challenging parts of life in a really fun way, which made it fun to talk about hard topics.
