Join us for this creative workshop inspired by paintings in ‘America after the Fall: Painting in the 1930s’.

The art of 1930s America tells the story of a nation in flux. In the wake of the Wall Street Crash in 1929, artists artists sought to capture what it really meant to be American in the 1930s. Changes in urbanisation, industrialisation and immigration pulsed across the country, resulting in one of the most vital periods in the 20th century for American artists.

Attendees will be supported to explore and discuss a variety of artworks in the galleries ranging from Jackson Pollock, Georgia O’Keeffe and Edward Hopper to Thomas Hart Benton and Philip Guston. The group will then be guided to create their own works inspired by their responses to the paintings they encountered.

These workshops are designed for groups working with disabled adults or adults at risk of exclusion from arts and culture. We advise groups are not more than 15 people so we can ensure everyone attending is properly supported to engage with the workshop.
