Zen Drawing (online)

Led by Amanda Schenk

Amanda Schenk is the visual artist behind Norden Farm's much-loved (and Instagrammed) glass corridor artwork in the school holidays. Join Amanda for this new drawing course, aimed at helping to create a sense of calm and relaxation through drawing patterns.

Suitable for all abilities, the workshops will focus on building confidence in your drawing abilities - concentrating on the soothing journey of the drawing experience, rather than the finished drawing.

In each session you'll explore how to produce different types of patterns in abstract drawings - looking at different designs each week.

You will need: paper (plain, no smaller than A5), lead pencil, eraser, sharpener, black fine liner or a pen. Optional is a black marker.

Tues 28 Jul – 1 Sept (exc 11 and 25 Aug)
11am - 12pm
£8 per class or £28 per 4 week course
Suitable for ages 18+ years
Booking cut off time: 9am on the day of each class

A Night at the Louvre - Leonardo da Vinci

In French with English subtitles.

Filmed at night especially for the big screen, this private guided tour of the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition, designed and curated by the Louvre Museum, is a unique opportunity to
contemplate the painter's most beautiful works up close.

This major retrospective devoted to his entire career as a painter shows how Leonardo placed painting above all other disciplines, and how his investigation of the world – the 'science of painting' as he called it – was the instrument of an art whose supreme ambition was to give life to his works. The insights provided by the exhibition curators during this private filmed visit offers a new understanding of Leonardo’s artistic practice and painting technique.

Exhibition press quotes:

‘It may be decades before anything like “Leonardo da Vinci” is staged again’ The Washington Post

‘An excellent, deeply considered exhibition’ The New York Times

‘Louvre's Leonardo da Vinci is a blockbuster with brains’ ★★★★★ The Guardian

‘In this scintillating, blockbuster show, Leonardo skewers the heart’ ★★★★ The Telegraph

‘The Louvre show is revelatory’ ★★★★ The Times

90 minutes (TBC)

Courtyard Theatre
£15
