People who have saved this event:


A drawing workshop with a dramatic twist.


Discover the disturbing story of Salome and examine Caravaggio’s Salome receives the Head of John the Baptist in a drawing workshop that has its own dramatic twist.

Draw poses inspired by the life of Salome, modelled by performer Chiara Stampone on a theatrically lit stage; and be guided by artist Sophie Charalambous, who will introduce a range of artistic techniques used to capture the drama of Salome’s story.

There will be opportunities to draw long and quick poses from the costumed model, and to experiment with light and tone.

All materials provided. Suitable for all abilities.
