We are just gearing up for the new season of our Drawing Sessions here at Drawing Projects UK. The Drawing Sessions all take place in the beautiful and well-equipped drawing studio at Bridge House and will start again in September and run through until December 2016.
From 26 September we will run the first six-week block of Monday evening Life Drawing Sessions led by artist tutor Alex Roberts from 6-8pm. Each Monday evening Alex will lead the life drawing session and support each participant to draw from the life model and to develop their technical skills and proficiency in drawing from life. By exploring the underpinning principles and processes of drawing from observation, participants will gain skills, facility and confidence in their drawing practice. With small group sizes that ensure individual attention, these life drawing sessions are suitable for adults of all levels of ability, including beginners and those seeking to refresh their skills by drawing our lovely team of life models with expert guidance from Alex. Earlier in the year, Alex led two very engaging weekend drawing sessions here at Drawing Projects which had excellent feedback from our participants. Therefore, we are delighted to welcome Alex back for this new evening session. You can find details and how to book here or please contact us for further information.
On Tuesday evenings there will be a model available to draw for a two hour drawing session, between 6pm and 8pm. The session will be structured by a lead artist participating in the session and enables experienced artists and creative professionals to come together to draw the life model. The costs of running the session are covered by a contribution by each participant. All places must be reserved in advance as we have limited places available in order to ensure the quality of the experience so please email us if you are interested to know more. We are open to running further sessions on this basis if there is demand.
We are also very delighted to be working with Trowbridge Arts again who will be holding their Exploring Drawing workshop for mixed abilities led by Michele Whiting on Thursday afternoons. We see this unique partnership as very valuable in helping us to share and promote the opportunity to engage in drawing in particular, and the arts more widely, in Trowbridge and beyond.
Our aim is to develop and facilitate drawing as a key means of visual expression and communication and our Drawing Sessions underpin this objective. There will be a range of new Drawing Sessions, Drawing Talks, After School Drawing Club amongst our programmes as well as our exhibitions and Open to Draw projects coming soon. We hope you will join in!
