Event description

Description

Did you know that of the 2300 artists on display at the National Gallery, only 11 are women? Did you know that less than 5% of the artists in the Met Museum's (NY) permanent collection sections are women, but 85% of the nudes are female? Statistics like this exist worldwide, seemingly archaic, yet still lingering on in the contemporary art world where our collective histories are too often forgotten or overlooked. POWERFUL WOMEN: invites you to step inside London’s Iconic National Gallery with a celebration of powerful female figures throughout history; from Grecian Goddesses to the wonderfully vicious Old Testament heroines, stories of Saints and Martyrs, Witches, Monsters and the stories of the female artists of the National Gallery.

The morning will be made up of a guided tour of the gallery with the afternoon devoted to a curated series of drawing exercises that aim to help you understand and engage with these paintings and stories in new and creative ways.
