Drag and draw
Carve some soap maybe?
Not content with putting on the most thought-provoking exhibition we can remember at Gas Hall, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery have arranged oodles of events to support Coming Out, which explores gender and sexuality. Our pick is Drag and Draw (Feb 17) — an afternoon of life-drawing with drag queen, Naz. In a specially commissioned gown, she'll be breaking from posing to perform and react to her audience. Bring your sketchpad or just come and say hi. Also coming up is an adult soap carving sesh (Jan 20) inspired by Hadrian Pigott's Boy, ?, Girl, which features in Coming Out. This event is free but booking is essential. And if you're yet to make it to the exhibition at all, how's about a curated tour? At lunchtime on January 26, it's £5.
