About

During this creative workshop you will be introduced to mindfulness, slow looking and mindful drawing in response to 17th-century Dutch portrait painters, including Rembrandt and Frans Hals. 

Seeing through the eyes of the artist, we capture a sense of life at that time as well as our shared human experience. 

Guided by mindfulness and drawing expert Clare Barton-Harvey, you will learn simple methods for engaging with art in refreshing and insightful ways. Guidance and prompts for slow-looking and drawing will be given using headsets.

This is a repeat of the session held at 11am.

Headsets

To use our headsets, you will be given your own set of disposable earphones, or you are welcome to bring your own.
