This will be an intensive practical drawing workshop encouraging a personal response to subject through mark making.
Using a diverse range of materials you will extend your drawing skills through structured sessions that explore observation, experimention and composition.
This will be complemented by looking at how a variety of artists use drawing in their practice to inform work as diverse as sculpture, performance, painting and print and we will share methods that inform our own working practices.
What you will need:
All tools and materials will be provided.
Residential option available. Find out our accommodation, costs and how to book here.
To begin we shall work on a series of exercises to expand mark making skills using pencil, charcoal, pen and ink. This will be followed by initial studies to explore composition and scale.
We will be installing playful compositions as starting points for you to be able to combine the drawing techniques developed in Day 1 with observational skills.
You will come away with a portfolio of drawings that will include traditional and experimental techniques.
