'Portrait of Jean de la Chambre at the Age of 33'
Gallery Educators Karly Allen and Katy Tarbard explore Frans Hals' 'Portrait of Jean de la Chambre at the Age of 33'.
First, listen to a brief talk, then respond by making your own work in this short, artist-led drawing session. Please have to hand a sharp pencil, paper and a rubber.
The session will take place online and will last about 1 hour.
Sometimes we might suggest using different drawing or craft materials, so, if you are able to, please keep a pencil case of different colours, a ruler and a pair of scissors nearby, as well as anything else you might like to experiment with.

Karly complements her teaching with her training as a mindfulness teacher. Co-director of Limina Collective, she is passionate about the potential for mindfulness techniques to enhance our experience of engaging with art.
Katy Tarbard is a Gallery Educator with a decade of teaching and programming experience in our Education Department, and has taught at Bishopsgate and County Hall Gallery in London. Her areas of interest are the Italian Renaissance and British 19th-century paintings.
