10 Week Course: Drawing on Everything

Thursdays, 19 September – 28 November 2019
2.30 – 5.00pm
Half term break: 24 October 2019

This course explores ways of looking and seeing, considering the balance between object and perception: It’s not what you look at that is important, but how you see it.

Participants will be supported in developing their own unique drawing practice using a wide range of materials including charcoal, ink and pastel. Each weekly session will be based around a series of fast drawing experiments followed by longer exercises, considering ideas around scale, colour, mark-making, memory, pattern, composition, movement and time.

Phil Goss will lead this course. Through drawing Phil creates images that conjure up a feeling or way of looking at something that cannot be expressed clearly in language. He often uses his surroundings as inspiration, distilling urban landscapes and still life into line drawings and adding colour intuitively. His work ranges from ink drawings to working with textiles and installation. Phil graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2013. He has shown at the V&A Museum, Evelyn Yard Gallery, and London Design Festival; designed print for Folk and Paul Smith and produced bespoke interiors for Alex Eagle, Blacks, Fix126, Santoremedio. He is currently the Director of the Centre for Recent Drawing in London. Read more.
