Event schedule details

Saturday 9 October

Event location details

Royal Geographical Society

Royal College of Art drawing tutors Lucy Gallwey and Sarah Mercer welcome you to a drawing workshop inspired by the landscapes and green spaces around the Exhibition Road area however big, small, or inaccessible they are… 

Beginning with a short walk to get you looking for all things green and inspiring, we will return to the interior drawing space at the National Geographic Society to reflect on and develop drawings from what we remember from on our walk. Starting with a series of short drawing exercises that get you engaging with the form and materiality of landscape, we will develop longer drawings in the second part of the session through a collaborative drawing exercise and the introduction of a surprise archaeological find, found in a landscape and brought by the tutors.  

No experience of drawing is required. This is an adult workshop for all minds and abilities. Materials will be provided but please bring your own refreshments. 

This event is sold out.
