What's On

Awaken the Arts

Exploring the exhibition Face to Face, this session will compare portraits of Celebrity and Fame with portraits of ‘the everyday’. This will include works by Andy Warhol and an early portrait of the Beatles.*

Awaken the Arts is for anyone who likes to look at, learn about and talk about art! It takes place on the first Tuesday of the month at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum led by our art education specialist Brian Scholes. The informal nature of the sessions makes them ideal for people experiencing difficulty with concentration or memory and their friend, partner or carer to enjoy together. 

£5. To book your place please contact Nicky McIntosh on 024 7623 74271 or email  

If you can't make this one, fear not, we have a session in June. 

* Face to Face, which is featured in the workshops for March, April and May, includes works of art from the National Portrait Gallery, The Courtauld Gallery and the Arts Council Collection as well as portraits from the Herbert’s own collection.
