We are presenting a further two Online Drawing Sessions with Chloe Briggs (AKA Drawing is Free) in association with the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2021 exhibition as part of our public engagement programme accompanying the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2021 exhibition, on show at Drawing Projects UK until 5 March 2022, The exhibition, events and engagement programmes at Drawing Projects UK are supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Both online Drawing Sessions led by Chloe Briggs are inspired by the exhibition, and reflect two of the ten themes identified in the free downloadable Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2021 Education Pack devised by Drawing is Free with Drawing Projects UK for the exhibition.
Nature as Witness on Wednesday 23 February 2022 at 9am is the first of these two Online Drawing Sessions with Chloe Briggs. The session will begin by looking at nature: the plants and flowers that surround us. This could be personal or political or both.The exceptional writer and teacher, Robin Wall Kimmerer, describes the difference between learning about something and learning from something. When we learn from, we listen, suspend judgement and do not claim to own or master. Learning to draw goes hand in hand with developing the ability to get yourself into a state of awe with almost anything, small things, common things. When starting, you do not yet know what the drawing will look like, what you will see, what you will discover. More information and booking is available here.
Inside the Body on Wednesday 2 March 2022 at 9am is the second of two online Drawing Sessions with Chloe Briggs. An X-ray of the human body is still an extraordinary thing to see even 120+ years since the process was invented. The inky, black and white qualities of an X-ray could be seen as a form of drawing in its own right. In this Drawing Session, you are invited to put your own body through an imagined X-ray machine. A machine so powerful, it can pick up not just bones, veins, organs, cells, but feelings and thoughts as well... More information and booking is available here.
