‘The weans just won’t sit still!’ Despite the lure of thruppence for the cinema or a new comic to read, renowned British artist 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 your 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 creative 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 we provide all the materials.
