Draw and Explore

These are FREE drop-in art workshops aimed at families. Meeting at
Elysium Gallery, 210 High Street, Swansea. Participants
will be taken for a short walk to to draw and explore in the City.
Locations of the walks will depend on the mobility of group members and
the weather. Possible visits will include  museums, galleries, the
market, and significant places around the city.

Group members will be given sketchbook to draw in and sessions will be
artist led. There will be two artists running the sessions, giving a
specific focus or theme and different aspects of the city, looking,
discussion, drawing and learning about the rich history of the place.
The art workshops will be relaxed and friendly allowing plenty of time
to chat, developing creative ideas and increase knowledge about local
history and culture,

We will offer the opportunity to develop sketchbook studies and
experiment further with art materials, explore fun and imaginative
interpretations of our experiences on the walks as a means of self
expression in the classroom space. Sessions will be structured and the
artists will support group members in their exploration of how materials
can be used. Each session will involve using a different material and
approach from abstract to figurative and 2D- 3D.
