Workshop: Sketchbooks in the Gallery
Molly Martin with Eye to Pencil
Part of Workshops Eye to Pencil Studio
Fri 31 May 10am-4.30pm
In Molly Martin’s second workshop, we will be working in sketchbooks between the National Gallery and the studio, drawing from paintings. WORKSHOP  DESCRIPTION 
In this second workshop led by artist and illustrator Molly Martin, we will be taking our sketchbooks to the National Gallery. One of the frequent sources of inspiration for Molly is to draw from other artists' work in Museums. The National Gallery is an inspirational, free resource for drawers. This workshop will start off in the National Gallery in the morning with a short tour of Molly’s favourite rooms. We will draw in pencil into sketchbooks looking for details of paintings which we are particularly attracted to. 

In the afternoon we will draw in the studio to develop ideas further, using a variety of media and techniques to transfer and rearrange images from our sketchbooks into a new composition. This process of transforming fragmented sketches into a new drawing is a valuable one and is supported by guidance from Molly.

Friday, 31 May
10am-4.30pm (1 hour lunch break)
