EXPERIMENTAL DRAWING SUMMER SCHOOL – Course review

http://www.rableydrawingcentre.com

The Experimental Drawing Summer School was an intensive 4-day course encouraging the exploration of drawing through new ‘ways of seeing’.

Over a week of experimenting both out and about and back at the studio, the group produced exciting multi-sensory drawings of varying scales that challenged the perceptions of object, place and space.

RABLEY CONTEMPORARY STAND 32

FRIDAY 17 OCTOBER  10.30 – 5pm

NP duo 10 x 5

Nik Pollard is Rabley Drawing Centre’s Artist in Residence 2014. This year he has been out in all weathers on the 700 acre farm that surrounds Rabley at the heart of the Wiltshire downs – hiding in cover waiting for hares, sitting in the field margins or hovering by the pond watching dragonflies and red kite.

His work stems from a passion for the natural world and is generated from sustained, direct observation. He makes drawings and paintings in the field and develops ideas through printmaking in the studio.
