Drawing, the oldest art medium, is being re-invented and featured in exhibitions around the world. This workshop is inspired by the current excitement surrounding drawing. We will experiment with wet and dry mediums, and a variety of surfaces to create dynamic compositions.
You do not need to be skilled at accurate representation in drawing; in fact, you will be encouraged to develop some abstract images. There will be simple guidance about composition and mark-making, as well as demonstrations of different techniques, but the emphasis is on cutting loose with mark-making and new ways to create drawings.
