Friday sessions at the Cartoon Museum: mark making

6 Mar at 7:00 pm9:30 pm


Tips & Hints, Process and techniques!

On this Friday evening session in Central London, we invite you to take part in life drawing from a model, which is also an interactive art lab!

The next life drawing session at the Cartoon Museum is designed to be a good jumping-on point for new artists, or a chance for professionals to share ideas and try new approaches.

The current “Dear Mr. Poole” exhibition at the Cartoon Museum celebrates the life of the legendary dip pen specialist, who owned the largest collection of pen nibs in the world, and was internationally renowned for his unparalleled nib knowledge, and talent for sourcing the rarest of pens.

As the Cartoon Museum brings a programme of events devoted to sharing process and techniques, we are designing a life drawing session about dramatic mark-making!

Imagine strong black graphic shapes breaking up the body of the model – a bold sweep of the boot, a feathery flick of the hair. It will be all about dynamic, expressive, elevated poses!

What’s more, we are inviting our new and regular artists alike to ask questions and share practical tips and hints with each other. As we have so many talented professional artists attend our life drawing sessions, let’s ask them questions and let’s play with different techniques we can use to improve our life drawing!

If you want to improve your practice, if you’d like to try new art materials and techniques, this more interactive and experimental session will be great for you.

We will have a range of materials for you to test, courtesy of our sponsors, Great Art.

£15 advance, £20 on the door.
Entry includes admission to the museum and free art materials courtesy of GreatArt.

Plenty of table space, drawing boards and easels available.

Life drawing session starts at 7pm, but the ticket holders are very welcome to come from 6:30 and check out the exhibition to draw inspiration:
