South Asian Heritage Month

In this virtual art class, participants learned to draw portraits inspired by one of India’s best known artists Satish Gujral. Exploring the themes of family and politics in his painting, Gujral’s portraits are distinct and expressive. After a childhood swimming accident left Gujral’s hearing permanently lost and one of his legs severely damaged, he battled personal trauma and prejudice on his journey to becoming a international multi-disciplinary artist.

Suitable for all abilities, this session taught participants how to draw a portrait, learning to position the features of the face, create texture and contrast in their work.
