Drawing From Movement

Saturday 6 May 2017, 10.30am – 4pm, £60 / Members £45

Nichola Pemberton, Drawing Movement

Join artist Nichola Pemberton in exploring new approaches to drawing through movement of the body. You will work in the galleries and learning studios, using expanded or restricted movements of your own body to explore our relationship to other people and objects through drawing.

Pemberton will encourage you to consider subjective, emotional responses to the scale and mass of objects and spaces, and introduce ideas of speed, repetition, movement and gesture to the drawing process.

You will create a series of large and small scale drawings, with process and experimentation at the heart of the workshop.


£60 / Members £45
