Drury Lane,

Also at this Venue


Join artist Helen Thomas for a 2.5 hour workshop exploring ways of looking, drawing and mark making.
Helen will be bringing a sense of the outside indoors for the workshop with a collection of plant forms to inform and inspire.

You'll explore line, texture and tone using a range of dry and wet media including pencils, ink and gouache on paper. there will also be the opportunity to try some improvised drawing tools to challenge and refresh your mark making.

The focus is on the process and experience of seeing through drawing, rather than creating a finished artwork (please note that this isn't a botanical illustration workshop).
You'll come away with several pages of sketches / drawing exercises, up to A1 in size (you're welcome to work on a smaller scale if you prefer).

All materials are provided

No experience is necessary
