Sunday Spot with Maya Gurung-Russell Campbell – Drawing Empathy
Past event

Ink Painting by Maya Gurung-Russell Campbell

Empathy: (noun) the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. 

Join this workshop designed for families, led by one of the artists in our New Contemporaries exhibition, Maya Gurung-Russell Campbell. In the session, each family group will create abstract drawings inspired by each other’s emotions, using a range of coloured inks and pastels to create artworks exploring what love, happiness and anger can look like for each of us.


Sessions are self-directed and open to all, but designed for children aged 3-12 years old. The space is supported by the SLG’s Art and Play team. 

Please book 1 ticket per family group of under 6 people; for family groups of more than 6, please book 2 tickets. We welcome families in every form. 

Our artist-led Sunday Spot workshops are open on the last Sunday of the month. 


  • Families will be allocated their own space to work in the studio, to maintain social distancing between bubbles, and asked to keep to their own space as much as possible. 
  • The garden space will be open and accessible for families to stretch out if they need to get moving. 
  • Materials will be individualised so that there is no sharing of materials between bubbles. 
  • Parents or carers will be asked to wear face masks inside, unless exempt. 

We’ll be following government guidance, so please be advised that sessions may be cancelled if new restrictions come into place and check ahead of making your journey.
