Transit: Mark-Making Drawing and Portraiture Art Workshops - by Geoffrey Chambers

In these workshops, explore the relationship between Woolwich and transportation, considering the constant movement of people, whether it's temporary or permanent, both physically and mentally. Delve into the question of how being in transit affects our sense of belonging and what new narratives we can uncover about Woolwich. 

The primary emphasis will be on portraiture, encouraging participants to move beyond striving for realistic images and instead convey emotionally charged personal stories through simple mark-making techniques. 

By attending these workshops, participants agree to complete a questionnaire regarding their experiences in Woolwich. The responses may be recorded, and their likeness may be used in large-scale images for public display. 

When & Where:  Fri 16th June, 4-6pm, artFix Woolwich
Sat 17th June, 11am-1pm, Woolwich library
