As part of the National Trust's Prejudice and Pride programme, we’re delighted to welcome award winning artist Tanya Raabe-Webber back to Beningbrough for a four day residency from Thursday 12 – Sunday 15 October 2017. During each afternoon Tanya will have conversations with four different people who are willing to share their diverse stories and experiences with the audience in the room whilst having their portrait created. It's a rare chance to see how artists develop the character of their sitter depicted in the final piece of art. Thursday 12 - Jeremy Hutchinson Jeremy will share his perspective on freedom of choice and expression through the clothes he prefers to wear. Saturday 14 - Lisa Kelly Lisa will share experiences of transitioning from a man to a woman and cares passionately about equality and diversity for everyone.

Friday 13 - Louise 'Eliza' Gregory & Dorothy Cline The mother and daughter duo will together share what art and culture mean to them in how they lead their lives as women in the 21st century. Sunday 15 - Amy Watson Amy is a young widow and single mother who will share her life changing experiences and how these have encouraged her to live in the moment So why not join in the conversation, explore your artistic side with the opportunity to use traditional and digital drawing techniques and watch an artist at work. Event is free. Normal property admission applies, free entry to National Trust Members.

Brishes paints and canvases ready.
