Modern still life drawing workshop with The Mark Makers @We Built This City
Tue 28 March 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
The Mark Makers is a London based pop up drawing workshop, run by working practitioners and friends Alice Nyong and Becky Noy.
Fun and non - stuffy; the workshops offer a new way of interpreting the traditional medium of still life, which people perhaps remember from school, more often than not in a boring way. Turning this idea into something fun, using original props (Think disco balls, tropical fruit and colour; no skulls or dead flowers in sight) and creating lots of drawing exercises to warm people up, and bring out creativity.
Alice works as a professional illustrator so is on hand with demonstrations and hands-on hints and tips to help you get the hang of drawing techniques, Release your creativity with fun observational drawing whilst learning something about how to use the materials, and generally having a couple of hours to yourself to make marks on a page.
Set in the basement space at We Built This City, you’ll be surrounded by inspiration!
The ticket price includes light refreshments, all materials you use on the night, as well as a curated kit of materials to take away to help you get drawing at home, as well as beautiful worksheets illustrated by Alice. You leave with some great original artwork to take away, as well as the tools to do so and a thirst to learn more.
