Workshop: Queer Still Life – Drawing our Stories with Kim Leutwyler at Manly Art Gallery & Museum

For young people aged 15 – 19 years:

Coinciding with Youth Week, we’ve invited queer artist Kim Leutwyler to present a still life workshop with a difference.

Pick up a new creative skill and make new connections as you explore queer identity through drawing. Participants are invited to bring a cherished object that holds personal significance – a talisman of empowerment within their queer identity. Kim will cover the fundamental techniques of drawing, as well as collectively crafting a still life tableau to inspire your queer stories.

All levels of drawing experience are welcome. Materials and tasty light eats included!

MAG&M is a safe space for LGBTQIA+ teens and their allies to express themselves and connect.

This event is part of Council’s Youth Week activations developed in partnership with KALOF, Council’s Youth team.
