A creative workshop inspired by artworks in our Helene Schjerfbeck exhibition.

Discover the mesmerising paintings of Helene Schjerfbeck (1862 – 1946), one of Finland’s best kept secrets, in Schjerfbeck’s first-ever UK exhibition. Through over 60 portraits, landscapes and still life paintings, this show traces the evolution of her remarkable career from her early naturalistic style, honed during her studies in France, to her highly abstracted self-portraits.

In this session, two artist-educators support participants to view and respond to a variety of artworks in the exhibition. Afterwards, they will be guided to create their own artworks in response to the paintings they’ve seen and discussed.

These workshops are designed for groups working with disabled adults or adults facing barriers to engaging with arts and culture. We advise groups be fewer than 15 people so we can ensure everyone attending is properly supported to engage with the workshop.
