What is the course about?

The aim is to generate a series of rapid drawings, and to free up your drawing style and use of materials, keeping productivity fluid and open. The drawing day will include shifts in pace and emphasis. You will be carefully guided through each transition, and given clear parameters. Some exercises will be closely directed, others will encourage you to apply your own reasoning and ideas. We will use traditional and contemporary approaches to drawing, so come prepared to observe, deconstruct, invent, enlarge, reduce, copy and collaborate – but most of all be prepared to draw intensively and responsively!

What will we cover?

Exploring ways of seeing to question ‘what is drawing?’
Drawing from a variety of sources including observation and the imagination
Experimental use of a variety of traditional and unconventional drawing materials
A range of creative approaches to mark-making.
