Events, demos and workshops at the 2018 Pastel Society Exhibition

One of the really good aspects of the Annual Open Exhibitions by National Art Societies is the fact most make an effort to put on a range of learning events for the public.  Most do demonstrations, some do guided tours and some do workshops

The Pastel Society is better at this than most and below you can find a list of the upcoming workshops which will run during their Annual Exhibition which runs between 20 February and 3 March at the Mall Galleries.

Events: drink and sketch or paint

The Mall Galleries organises a drink and sketch event on the last Thursday of each month - which generally coincides with one of the annual exhibitions by one of the national art societies. They each have a different theme. There's no tutor but lots of people wanting to sketch.


All these events are free to attend with admission to the exhibition
  • 21 February (12:00pm to 4:30pm)- Working with Portrait ModelsSusan Relph PS will be in the gallery working from two portrait models and visitors can bring their own sketchbooks and media and join in

The workshops will be held in the dedicated Learning Centre (accessed via the main entrance to the galleries) and run from 11:00am to 5:00pm. All workshops costs £60 or £55 if you book four workshops or are a Friend of the FBA (or £50 if a Friend books 4)
Participants may bring a packed lunch although drinks and snacks are available from the Mall Galleries Café. Easels and drawing boards will be provided, but students should bring their normal range of materials. Models will be available, but where the subject is landscape, participants are recommended to bring sketches to work from.
Now is the time to get signed up before all the spaces go!
