We are thrilled to have Drawing is Free in Residence at Drawing Projects UK during the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2020 exhibition.
Chloe Briggs (aka Drawing is Free) is a British artist based in Paris whose practice focuses on drawing. In 2013, she created the structure - Drawing is Free - to offer people of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to draw together. Building on an Open to Draw residency at Drawing Projects in 2019, Chloe will be 'in residence' during the exhibition and will develop and support the engagement programme under the Drawing is Free philosophy of 'no experience necessary; all ages and backgrounds welcome'.
Drawing is Free will publish 'drawing prompts' each Sunday throughout October, so you can all join in, and the drawings that everyone makes will be shown in an online exhibition, There will be education packs inspired by the drawings on show in the exhibition, and a number of online 'in conversations' and events. There will also be a symposium on teaching drawing in pecha kucha format (20 slides, 20 second commentary) on 17 October from 3pm to 5pm, which you can book for here.
More information available on the Drawing is Free website where you can download the free education pack and drawing prompts wherever you are, and be inspired by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2020 exhibition!
The Drawing is Free residency is supported with public funds by Arts Council England as part of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2020 exhibition and engagement programme at Drawing Projects UK.
