To celebrate International Women’s Day and HeForShe Arts Week, join artist Robin-Lee Hall to re-imagine what the Gallery’s Victorian Collection might have looked like if women had been afforded the same opportunities as their male counterparts and their achievements recorded in portraiture.

Consider questions of gender identity and representation in your drawings and set about redressing the balance. At 20.15 you will get the opportunity to put your work out and Robin with conduct a friendly Friday critique.

There is a short introduction at 18.30 but feel free to drop in whenever you like. You can stay for 10 minutes or 2 hours. The class is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to accomplished artists.

All materials are provided, so no need to bring anything with you unless you want to work in your own sketchbook or on an iPad.

Every Friday there is a free drop-in drawing activity happening in the Gallery.
