Contemporary Drawing – Holiday Workshop

This Contemporary Drawing course explores ideas such as spontaneity, memory, imagination, abstraction and construction and experiments with a variety of techniques and materials. Case studies of world class drawers will challenge your ideas of what drawing is and allow you to question what you define as drawing and provide a context for this learning experience. There will be a focus on collaboration between students during the course to build on your existing knowledge of drawing, support the development of your practice and personal vision.
