Main Gallery Exhibition: Intuitive Drawing Clive King Workshop

Clive-King-Exhibition-2017-1

All work created will be on display in the Main gallery from August 28, 2017- October 27, 2017

This type of workshop isn’t an end itself but it is generally an opening up process and does allow the person engaged to consider option/directions and media connections that might not have been apparent before. Drawing is the engine that drives the workshop but many of the works turn into paintings, collages or even 3 D constructions.

Although the groups are mainly fine art students, many graphic design, architect, time based media and photography students have found the experience highly worthwhile. The workshop works well on the BA, BFA and MFA levels or a mixture of all levels.
