Fictional Movie Poster Portraits with TextaQueen

TextaQueen is part super-hero, part performance artist and all-round exciting character. Her popular exhibition Between You and Me, on now at Benalla Art Gallery, brings together her playful, cheeky aesthetic and an eccentric blend of politicised subjects.

We are excited to be able to offer this one-off opportunity to join TextaQueen for a felt-tip pen drawing workshop. Using vintage movie poster designs as inspiration, participants will learn how to use texta pens to create brightly coloured movie poster portraits. Participants will be asked to imagine themselves starring in a movie, battling everyday personal struggles or those in the wider world.

For adults & teens
$20 members $25 non-members
