Event description

Description

Hosted in the hallowed halls of London’s National Gallery, for this day-long workshop London Drawing Group will be uncovering the hidden history of WITCHES, MONSTERS AND BEASTIES in Western Painting.

A staple of every culture, from the Greek Myths and Homer’s Odyssey to Medieval Knights and their foes, Monsters and Beasts have long brought a twist of the supernatural to the imaginations of Artists. Follow us on a journey through Mythical Beings, Catholic Monsters, Dragons, Saints and Sirens, and learn the sinuous stories and lugubrious legends that inspired them.

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.

The morning’s tour of the gallery will be led by our resident LDG tutor Luisa-Maria MacCormack, 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.


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 remember to bring a sketchbook and pencils etc or a drawing board and sheets of loose paper if you prefer. Meet at the information desk inside the Sainsbury Wing Entrance (to the right hand side of the main National Gallery) at 10:45am. There will be a break for lunch and the session will finish at 4:30pm**

Please note that this is an internal tour run by London Drawing Group, and if you are late gallery staff will not be able to direct you, latecomers on the day should refer to their information pack received via email for their tutor’s contact details.
