In this workshop artist Lois Hopwood will encourage you to take a holiday from your own style and work in the style of someone else. Drill down into what they do how they do it , the materials they use, how they employ a figure in their work, the relevance of colour, line and composition.

Use your figure drawing to make a picture using the Mis en Scen - the set that we have created in the studio. Mis en scen- is setting the scene with textiles furniture props etc.
