About

Gallery Educators Jo Lewis and Katy Tarbard explore Paolo Uccello's 'The Battle of San Romano'.

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, 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.
