23 Feb — 28 Apr 2021
In partnership with Who Dares Works we are delivering two series of creative workshops to do at home, over eight weeks. These workshops are devised by our tutor Jill Pierre, who will guide you through different traditional and experimental drawing and painting techniques and will encourage you to use art materials you can find in your own home to your advantage to discover new ways of working.
These workshops are for people who want to improve their wellbeing through creative activities as well as learn new skills.
BEGINNERS: DRAWING & PAINTING
TUE 23 FEB, 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 MARCH, 20, 27 APRIL 2021
This offer is for participants with little or no experience, or who just want to rediscover the basics. This course will be emailed out on a Tuesday in the form of a PDF resource pack, giving the participants a week to do the course work, with a follow-up call by tutor Jill Pierre on Monday afternoons. If you do not have internet access the PDFs can be posted to you as hard copy instead.
IMPROVERS: DRAWING & PAINTING
WED 24 FEB, 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 MARCH, 21, 28 APRIL 2021
This offer is for participants who have completed the Beginners Workshop and want to build on what they’ve learned so far, as well as participants who already have a basic knowledge. This course will be emailed out on a Wednesday in the form of a PDF resource pack, giving the participants a week to do the course work, with a follow-up call by tutor Jill Pierre on Tuesday afternoons. If you do not have internet access the PDFs can be posted to you as hard copy instead.
Participants on both courses will use drawing and painting media they might already have at home, such as pencils, crayons, pens, household paint, food colouring, wallpaper, cereal boxes, old envelopes, writing paper etc. In addition, a small set of acrylic paints and a few brushes will be useful.The Improvers course also requires a couple of water soluble pens. The gallery can post acrylics and brushes as well as the soluble pens to participants, on a need-basis.

Who Dares Works is a project that engages, supports and inspires adults within West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly who are out of work and distanced from the labour market. The project aims to overcome barriers to participation or progression and reconnect with training, jobsearch and work. In doing the project inspires positive and lasting change for people and communities.
