About this Event

The Surprise of Drawing is a six-week drawing course centred on the principle that everyone can draw. These experimental sessions will give the chance to those with little or no experience to explore drawing, those out of practice to re-explore drawing, and for anyone in a rut to shake up old drawing habits. It will be a chance to make work that looks both out into the world and inside ourselves for inspiration.

Each session will combine short and dynamic exercises to help participants warm up and enter an unselfconscious state in which they are less inhibited by ideas of perfection and failure. We will shift emphasis from technical accuracy, and instead spend time using different strategies to help unlock surprising talents we all have within. We will be lead by these discoveries to make work that is unique to each participant. Each week will see us move through a mixture of observation and imagination based exercises, leading up to longer form exercises that allow participants time to develop more sustained drawings. The sessions will be playful yet structured, encouraging participants to explore and experiment with the ways they see, translate and create.

Materials: Drawing materials will be provided. If you have an easel, please feel free to bring.

Format: Evening class over six weeks.

Dates: 7–9pm, Monday 24 February to Monday 30 March.

Fees: £115 per six-week course.
