Workshop: Drawing into painting
with Eye to Pencil
Part of Summer Evening Workshops
Eye to Pencil Studio
In Harry Alexander’s workshop we will be experimenting with mixed media approaches such as drawing with scissors, staining, drawing on different surfaces, and drawing with ink.
What is the difference between a drawing and a painting? In this workshop led by Harry Alexander, we will begin with small observational drawings from photographs, progressing to larger scale mixed media works.
“My aim, when making work, is to fall somewhere between painting and drawing. They are two streams that flow in and out of each other, and are both equally important.”
Harry Alexander is a London based painter studying Fine Art at City and Guilds. He is currently working on a series of oil paintings on paper referencing famous blues musicians from the 1960’s.
Format: Our summer series of workshops will focus on extending drawing through low-tech, low cost, DIY techniques, with the aim to share skills. Workshop leaders will give a brief introduction to their practice, followed by a short demonstration of their approach with materials. See how emerging creatives are using drawing in their practices, and have a go yourself, to learn the rudiments of new techniques.
