About this event

Join London Drawing Group as we step inside the magical world of BOTANY for our newest class dedicated to the intersection between FEMINISM, BOTANY, and this time... SPIRITUALITY AND ABSTRACTION!

This class is dedicated to the life and work of one of the most visionary female artists you've never heard of - Hilma Af Klint was a swedish victorian woman, who, obsessed with the natural world around her, envisioned a kind of art no one had ever dreamed of before.

Now lauded with 'inventing' abstraction at least five years before Kandinsky (the man previously accredited with this concept), Hilma AF Klint is FINALLY starting to be recognised for the unique and incredible talent she was, over 70 years after her death.

As well as being a visionary artist, she was also a unique character in terms of her beliefs, inspired by Theosophy and cutting edge scientific discoveries of the time, Her paintings became a unique visual representation of her complex spiritual ideas.

This class will explore Hilma's Life, Works AND her links to Spirituality in a 30 minute lecture before the practical element of the class kicks off.

Students will then be guided through the creation of their own abstract works in the manner of Hilma's beautiful paintings. We will work from both imagery on the screen, but also from your own houseplants, inviting you to consider the beauty and interconnectedness of life as she saw it, creating our own works in watercolour or gouache in a state of mindful creativity.

This will truly be a totally unique class and we are very excited to get drawing with you all!

Organiser LONDON DRAWING GROUP

Organiser of A FEMINISTS GUIDE TO BOTANY: HILMA AF KLINT & ABSTRACTION


The London Drawing Group is a collective of three contemporary artists currently practising in London. Although our practices are individually varied and diverse, we are brought together by our shared love of and passion for drawing, and our experiences of being taught by a huge range of practising artists at the Royal Drawing School Central.

Our aim as a collective is simply to get more people drawing, making, connecting and engaging with art. We genuinely believe that art is for everyone, and that sometimes the only thing keeping people from engaging in the playful, unknown and unpredictable process of art-making, is that it can seem intimidating. Through working to break down contextual barriers through innovative methods of teaching and creating, we hope to make drawing approachable to everyone.
