Workshop: Looking vs Seeing
Millie Gifford
Part of Thursday Evening Workshops Eye to Pencil Studio
Thu 08 Jun 6:30-8:30pm
This workshop led by Millie aims to challenge ideas surrounding ‘Looking’ versus ‘Seeing’, encouraging the observation and deconstruction of organic forms. WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
Using sketchbooks, we will produce energetic abstracted depictions with mark making underpinning our drawings. Millie will encourage us to work quickly and intuitively, experimenting through drawing, thinking through making, and adopting a playful and colourful approach to observation and abstraction.

Materials are included.

Millie Gifford is a graduate from Arts University Bournemouth, working as a painter and producing large scale abstract collage-like paintings, depicting different viewpoints of organic material;   "Drawing is essential to my practice, the stepping stone towards full abstraction. Instilling the energy of my sketchbook within my paintings is essential. Drawing with paint, via wonky lines and skew-whiff shapes, I can begin to abstract forms and move away from recognisable features." Instagram: @milliegifford

 Our series of Thursday Evening workshops will focus on extending drawing through low-tech, low cost, DIY techniques. The creatives leading each workshop are young and emerging, yet each is working in a strong and accomplished way with their approach and materials. Curated by Alex Heard.

Anyone who is interested in drawing or who draws but would like to try out new materials and techniques centred on drawing.
