This workshop programme is for people experiencing early-stage dementia, mild cognitive impairment or memory challenges and their companions.

Arts 4 Dementia and The Royal Collection are delighted to be working together for another year, offering a 6-week exhibition tour and drawing workshop at The Queen’s Gallery in February 2024.

Join us and marvel at the Hans Holbein Exhibition! During the sessions Catherine, one of the Gallery’s fantastic guides will be taking us through the exhibition, where we will be focusing on a different theme, drawing and painting each week.

At the end of the tour, you will take part in a practical workshop in the gallery with one of our brilliant mixed media artists. Taking inspiration from the sketches, drawings and paintings in the gallery, you will create your own Holbein-inspired artworks. Learn how to draw and mark-make with a variety of materials from charcoal, chalk and graphite in the stunning gallery space.

Please note the programme is FREE of charge and all materials, and light refreshments will be provided.

If this sounds appealing to you, please get in touch as spaces are limited.
