The Whitworth Art Gallery

I have been meaning to tell you about this for a while now, a few weeks ago me and about 9 others from college visited Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester.  While we were there we did a couple of workshops one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  The one in the morning was more out of my comfort zone as it was to do with drawing and this is not my strongest area but i was optimistic and hoped to find a new method that worked for me.

The first task was to draw what we were thinking, feeling or had seen that day without taking the pencil of the paper.
 Then we went around the gallery looking at the artwork on the wall and quickly just drawing what stood out to us.
 Then I did a drawing showing the idea of a journey which was the theme of these workshops and a piece of art that I saw.  The knots show difficulties that we all come across in our own journeys.
For the afternoon workshop we looked at creating a person and garments then we created them using materials that we were given on the floor.  Here is mine.
