Part of Ruskin in Sheffield

Street art activities and film projections inspired by Venetian painter Tintoretto and British Victorian art critic John Ruskin.

Get your photograph taken in our pop-up studio, then embellish it with paint, stencils and spray cans. Paste it onto the hoardings next to Exchange Place Studios to help create a new mural inspired by Tintoretto's epic 'fast and furious' paintings.

This event is a collaboration between the Guild of St George, Yorkshire Artspace, Museums Sheffield, Scuola Grande di San Rocco, University of Sheffield and the Big Draw Festival.
