Art/Art History: What is Creativity & How Do I Get It? Workshop With Dr Annabel Frearson From University of Reading

10th November 2021 @ 16:00 - 17:00



In this live interactive Art workshop, we will be joined by Dr Annabel Frearson, a leading university academic from University of Reading, who asks the question, ‘Is creativity something that can be learned, or do you have to be born with it?’

The workshop will explore concepts of originality, skill, freedom, and imagination through exercises and examples from Art history.

Attendees are invited to participate in some simple tasks, including drawing and writing, as well as discussion. Please bring paper and pens/pencils.
