One-off friendly workshops with experienced tutor Alex Roberts, perfect for beginners (or those that want to get back into drawing) but don’t want to commit to a full course.

The workshops will include fun activities and exercises to ease you into all aspects of drawing. Find out about different drawing materials/tools and their uses, learn how to observe and develop your own individual style, all within a relaxed and supportive environment.

The workshops will also explore contemporary drawing techniques on display in The Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition at The Edge, providing an opportunity for in-depth discussion, observation and drawing activities from within the touring display.

Tea and coffee will be provided. All welcome.

Tutor: Alex Roberts is a British artist that lives and works between Berlin and the UK. She is an artist who works with paint and translucence; addressing paintings’ surface and spatial depth. Testing the sliding scale of figuration and abstraction, her focus is how we perceive identity and change – encounters. Roberts completed her MAFA at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, 2015. In 2016, Roberts joined The Transart Institute as an Artist Advisor, along with helping establish an on-going drawing programme about the figure, besides linking platforms of exchange at Drawing Projects UK.
