Throughout the Drawing (Paper) Show we will be running a number of FREE drawing events and workshops encouraging people to respond to stimulus such as music, movement, discourse and the architecture and ambience of The Bridewell Studios and Gallery (a Grade 2 Listed building).
We hope to help to demystify drawing and to encourage people to see that drawing is easily accessible, affordable and very rewarding. With aims to acknowledge the positive mental aspects of drawing as an experience as well as an outcome.
