Drawing Lab: Body, Space & Narrative, with Gabriella Boyd

The OptimistCourtesy the artist 2018



Explore ideas surrounding body, space and narrative through a series of drawing workshops led by artist Gabriella Boyd.

This trio of workshops will unpack themes related to Donna Huddleston’s exhibition The Exhausted Student, through a variety of visual experiments using different materials, techniques and playful research tools. Responding to inspiring literary extracts selected by the artist, you will be able to gather visual references from Drawing Room’s study library and combine them with your own sources of inspiration to fuel your creative practice. The course will offer after-hours access to Drawing Room gallery space for collective activity and friendly one-to-one support, inclusive to all.
