Description

Female Sexuality and the Male Gaze in the National Gallery.

Join London Drawing Group for our original blockbuster workshop, Female Sexuality and the Male Gaze. This day-long workshop held in the halls of the National Gallery, aims to question the role of Female Sexuality in the History of Art, explore the nuance of the nude and how the concept of the Male Gaze has permeated notions of female sexuality throughout history.

With a guided tour around some of the National Gallery’s most dazzling works, allow your guide, resident LDG Art History Tutor Luisa Maria MacCormack to unravel the hidden stories of the roles, trials and tribulations of women throughout the history of painting. Expect insight, in-situ discussions and talks concerning the stories behind the stares as well as the afternoon’s series of tailored drawing exercises and techniques that aim to explore the power of the gaze.

Now in their second year, London Drawing Group’s ‘Drawing Tours’ are a fantastic series of workshops designed to help both professional artists and complete beginners experience the joys of the London galleries and museums in a new way.

Through our subject-specific guided tours you will draw from the surprising histories and personal stories behind well-known works housed in London’s most iconic buildings, and through the expertise and guidance of our tutors, experience the paintings in a totally different light.

PLEASE NOTE BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL!


**Please remember to bring a sketchbook and pencils etc or a drawing board and sheets of loose paper if you prefer.
