So what exactly is The Big Circle Draw?
A group of Art School students and alumni will sit in a large circle. With a continuing series of short exercises, each artist takes it in turn to play model and every drawing produced by the circle is captured digitally to form an animation that will grow as the afternoon continues.
The group will be taught by City & Guilds of London Art School drawing tutor and co-author of 'Drawing Projects: An Exploration of the Language of Drawing' Jack Southern.
At the Art School we see drawing as fundamental to all our courses. Under the direction of Diane Magee, our Drawing Studio is at the heart of the Art School’s activities, primarily focusing on the role that observational drawing plays in stimulating and facilitating the development of artists and crafts specialists across our Undergraduate and Postgraduate Degree and Diploma courses in Fine Art, Historic Carving and Conservation of cultural objects.
We welcome you to come and see our talented students in action and sketch along if you wish to create your own drawing.
The Big Circle Draw takes place in our Foundation Studios, Kennings Way, Kennington, London SE11 4EF.
