The Big Draw X Koestler Arts with Sarah
Part of The Big Draw X Koestler Arts Online via Zoom
Thu 29 Oct 17:00
Koestler Arts are part of the Big Draw! Join us for the second of 2 artist-led events with Koestler alumni. We love encouraging people to have a go at drawing – it’s one of the most popular and accessible artforms in our annual Koestler Awards. This is the first time we’re taking part in The Big Draw, an annual festival to inspire people to ‘get back to the drawing board’ in all sorts of imaginative ways.

We’re delighted to introduce two artists, who are both Koestler alumni, to lead events responding to this year’s festival theme of ‘A Climate of Change’. They’ll be in conversation with us about their creative practice and how this environmental theme speaks to them, before demonstrating live artwork creation before our eyes!

Sarah will be hosting our second event. Sarah paints portraits that are incredibly realistic and for this event she will take us through how she does it, step by step

In keeping with the ‘Climate of Change’ festival theme, her portrait subject will be a famous environmental activist who has inspired and galvanised people across the world.

"I’ve been drawing for about 25 years now and have developed a great range of skills in this time, portraits being my absolute favourite!! I’ll be showing you how to achieve some of the same techniques, from sketch mapping, blending, colour mixing, shading and highlights.”
