We’ve been lucky to see this year’s Outburst exhibition What al-Nadeem Knew here in the gallery, but unfortunately we haven’t been able to share it with the public yet, as we are still closed under Covid-19 restrictions. We hope we can re-open in time to welcome you all back to see it.

In response to the exhibition, our Gallery Assistant Katharine has created a fun drawing workshop for our Junior Gallery artists. In the activity Katharine and Esther explore how we might imagine a person differently if we take away pronouns that are used for a girl or a boy. We are going to try to describe someone we know purely by what they look like, what they like to do and their personality and then draw them!

The person you draw may look different to the person you know! 

What you are going to need:
2 pieces of paper
Something to draw with: pencil, rubber
Something to colour with: pens, pencils, crayons, paints etc.
A partner for the exercise (if no one is available you can also print off our suggested list of descriptions)
