Event description
A workshop encouraging observational drawing as an act of play and image making, exploing a wide range of drawing materials and techniques

About this Event

Play as Form

In an era of uncertainty, political instability and environmental concern, our need for optimism, escape and invention is being realised through play. Learning through the playful act of drawing, engaging with experimentation, embracing the unexpected and the economy of drawing, participants will challenge risk and chance. This two day workshop will encourage the act of observational drawing as an act of play and image making. The use of a wide range of drawing materials and techniques will be explored.
