Getting back into drawing and mark making
Subject: Still life objects – objects from your kitchen and garden
Our February Gallery Sketchers allows participants to embrace their homes and consider the creative opportunities within their own environments. Exploring mark making, both returnees and first timer Gallery Sketchers will find this an opportunity to cement and extend their drawing practices. This introductory session will revisit the array of material and technical approaches to drawing that aim to challenge our preconceptions around drawing. This is an opportunity to relax and meditate on the benefits of drawing for all ranges of ability.
