Drawing is a self-justifying activity since as we draw, we perceive things more fully and live more intensely.

About

Every Wednesday, 10 sessions, £385
From 27 September 2017 to 29 November 2017, 10am – 5pm

Tutor: Francis Hoyland

We are all exposed! The model is naked, the drawings of the participants are examined, and the teacher – if that is the right word – has to draw in front of a distinguished audience. This is as it should be, but why do we do it? We may not be able to answer that question but we can circle round it. When we work we define ourselves in relation to each others’ work – we are all different. ‘Homo Faber’, man the maker, was something that distinguished early men and women: we want to make, since we have emerged from a long process of making, which is manifested in our need to make. We want to know what we are: that naked human over there is our target but we can only approach it through a process of overcoming difficulties in ourselves and through a process of progressive self-knowledge. Perhaps it is more true to say that drawing is a self-justifying activity since as we draw, we perceive things more fully and live more intensely.’
