To celebrate National Drawing Day, artist Banbha Mc Cann will host a workshop focusing on drawing with watercolours. Informed by Tom dePaor’s exhibition I see earth, we will use line and pattern to explore the qualities techniques of watercolour painting.
Beginning from the central importance of the line both in drawing and architecture, we will create abstract patterns that illustrate space and form and develop our understanding of the materials of water, paint and paper.
Building on this, we will use these techniques for representational drawing using still life objects and props.

These workshops are free and suitable for adults and children from 8+
