About the sketch session

Inspired by Artisan’s current exhibitions, Beneath the Surface by Luke Maninov Hammond and Seitanic Beach by Sarah.x.Isabella, this tutored drawing session explores the visual and aesthetic qualities found in the emotionally tactile landscapes of the mind and body.

The tutor will guide participants in the use of mixed media approaches and techniques, focusing on rhythm, pattern, form and space to create real and imagined landscapes.

Drawers of all drawing abilities welcome.

About Artisan’s drawing sessions

Artisan’s drawing sessions are a series of tutored drawing sessions that take inspiration from Artisan’s exhibition program and exhibiting artists. The program is held once per exhibition and each session will focus on a new theme in response to Artisan’s current exhibitions. The aim of this program is to encourage visitors to engage with and respond to craft and design objects and exhibition themes in new and creative ways.
