Thursday 27th August | 3:00pm-5:00pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting
Join GCHT for this unique online workshop and learn how to create your own beautiful drawing of Langside Hall, taught by renowned Glasgow artist Frank Boyle.
You will have the opportunity to watch Frank draw the building from scratch, teaching participants how to capture its character and architectural details on paper. Participants will then be invited to create their own versions with guidance from Frank whilst learning about the building itself from GCHT staff.
This is perfect for beginners and experienced drawers alike – anyone with a genuine love of Glasgow’s architecture. All you need is a paper and pencil, however feel free to get creative and work in any medium you like!
Langside Hall is a Category A-Listed building located in Shawlands. It was originally built for the National Bank of Scotland in 1847 and designed by John Gibson. It was first located in Queen Street before being moved brick by brick to its current location on Langside Avenue in 1902. GCHT recently awarded a Development Grant of £5,000 to the Langside Halls Trust.
