WITCHES, MONSTERS AND BEASTIES: Art of the Supernatural at The National Gallery

Hosted in the beautiful halls of the National Gallery, for this day-long workshop London Drawing Group will be uncovering the hidden history of MONSTERS AND BEASTIES in Western Painting.

A staple of every culture, from the Greek Myths and Homer’s Odyssey to Medieval Knights and their foes, Monsters and Beasts have long brought a twist of the supernatural to the imaginations of Artists. Follow us on a journey through Mythical Beings, Catholic Monsters, Dragons, Saints and Sirens, and learn the sinuous stories and lugubrious legends that inspired them.

The morning will be made up of a guided tour of the gallery with the afternoon devoted to a curated series of drawing exercises that aim to help you understand and engage with these paintings and stories in new and creative ways.
