Second year BA (Hons) History of Art and Museum Studies student Anna Roberts, presented her public event at Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery. The workshop supported the Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing exhibition that features artworks sourced from the Royal collection.
Anna's workshop combined two of Leonardo da Vinci's passions, music and art, in a workshop that explored how music can elevate and influence art. The public were invited to use the free art materials that were supplied and to bring their own phone/MP3 with five songs that evoked different emotions.
The event was well-attended by members of the public, delighting Anna, the course teaching team who supported the workshop and Joyce Parr, Walker Gallery Education staff member who commented: "Anna has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and enthusiasm have led to the development of a workshop with a very original yet accessible theme. She was very well organised, and communicated really well with me. The people who attended gave great feedback and some beautiful artwork was produced. Anna was confident in her approach to delivering the workshop. It has been great to work with Anna."
Dr Emma Roberts, History of Art and Museum Studies programme leader commented: "The staff from the History of Art course are very proud of Anna's success and are delighted at the impact that she has had at the Walker Art Gallery."
