In order to facilitate better engagement with subject matter, compositions and processes associated with the exhibition Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry, in July we will re-create Dutch Golden Age interiors for these new ‘Rent an Easel’ Sessions.

The aim of this self-directed activity is to investigate interior space and composition through drawing. A specially-arranged three-dimensional scene considering lighting, textures, and the spatial relationship of objects will be staged for participants to draw. No direct tutelage will be provided, but a facilitator will be on hand to explain the concept and offer suggestions if desired.

These sessions take place at the following dates/times: 20 & 27 July at 4-6pm and 6.15pm-8.15pm.

Tickets are available online, and from the Gallery Shop.

Please note: Materials will NOT be provided for these sessions, artists should bring their own.
