Admission free. Tickets are strictly limited - Please email for tickets and meeting information. Tickets are prioritised for BSL speakers and visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Why did Stubbs call this picture, 'A Conversation'? How do the figures interact with each other to create lines and relationships?

First, take part in a short discussion, then experiment with quick drawing exercises to help you look more closely at the painting.

All materials provided. No previous drawing experience required.
