Art Macabre will be running a Pygmalion themed life drawing workshop as part of Dulwich Picture Gallery's Late. A drop-in event, as part of a wider programme of activities across the gallery. 

Sketch an uncanny mythical figure; an ivory statue come to life with a kiss. Be inspired by the tale of Pygmalion, who fell in love with the artwork he sculpted. Draw a beautiful living statue, exploring the strange role of the life model between object and subject; artwork and active agent.  Explore the fascinating world of mythology, as we take a look at the gods, nymphs and magical scenes in the Gallery’s collection. Through performances, workshops and talks, discover how artists have been - and continue to be - inspired by legend.

Tickets £12 available here
