Workshop: Drawing as remixing
Millie Rose Dobree
with Eye to Pencil
Part of Evening Workshops
Eye to Pencil Studio
Join artist Millie Rose Dobree for a drawing workshop that embraces copying and remixing image and text.
We all learn to speak, walk, dance, sing and draw through copying. Rejecting the idea that copying is unoriginal, we will be making drawings using found text, objects, shapes, stencils, and each other. Millie will begin with some exercises in compiling text from newspapers, flyers, and the internet. Taking inspiration from how collage assembles the everyday to say something new, we will then swap texts to create images in response. The collective narratives we create could be turned into a zine that you can take home.
Tues, 12 March, 6.30-8.30pm

Evening workshop format: In this Spring Term of Evening Workshops a flurry of young artists join us in the studio with their ideas on drawing. Looking at the abilities and limitations the medium brings us we will be exploring ideas from girlhood to cartography. We hope to see you join us for abstract animation, collaborative drawing , interpreting the internet and more. Evening Workshops are on every Tuesday from 6.30-8.30pm.
Millie is a visual artist born in London. She moved to Amsterdam to study Fine Art at the Rietveld Academie. While on exchange at The Cooper Union in New York, the Experimental Printmaking class illuminated her interest in ‘re-marking’, sampling and remixing. She is currently exploring the limits of this expanded printmaking practice on the MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths. Millie has curated exhibitions during the pandemic in unused office spaces - @bestwishes.galleryInstagram @millierosedobree
