Friday Beyeler: “Niko Pirosmani” drawing workshop

Friday Beyeler
At various locations within the current exhibition, participants are invited to let Niko Pirosmani’s works inspire drawings of their own during the interactive tour. Participants thereby get to know the Georgian artist’s fascinating oeuvre, immerse themselves in his multifaceted world and produce their own sketches based on his favourite motifs. Pirosmani’s extraordinary paintings become a starting point from which to experiment with different drawing techniques, resulting in a fresh view of the originals.

The workshop takes place in German.
Meeting point: Foyer. Drop-in.
All Materials will be provided.
