Weekend Course in Drawing


A short residential course in Drawing at Higham Hall, Cockermouth

Course Statement: “From small to large - metaphor & landscape. The way things are drawn is at least as important as what they are, every fragment of line, patch of tone, spot of colour and area of space. In the act of drawing there is something outrageously magic, and you have to experience it physically, to understand that sizzling buzz! To break through into a realm where the drawing itself takes over, and tells you what it wants - drawing you deeper and deeper, to where it has assumed an independant life of its own, which you must respect. To make good drawings, artificial intelligence is no good - you need the real thing.”
