'The Bairns just won't sit still!'
Despite the lure of 'thruppence' for the cinema or a new comic to read, Joan Eardley's young models found it difficult to hold a pose for long. She had to work fast - and if you have ever tried to draw your children or grandchildren, you will understand the challenges Joan faced trying to capture a fleeting expression or a shy smile.
Join artists from The Thrive Archive for a 90-minute workshop 'After Eardley' and explore the joy of drawing portraits of children at speed. Simply bring a photo of a 'wee one' to inspire you and an old shirt or apron to wear. The 90-minute workshops are free and we provide all the materials.
There are 15 places available.
