Modern Times: responding to chaos at the De La Warr Pavilion, a workshop that offers an opportunity to work with the exhibition of 20th century drawings held at the De La Warr pavillion. With a consideration of how artists think through drawing as a starting point, this workshop will give you an opportunity to make your own drawings in a number of media including collage. The day will be punctuated by discussion about how working intuitively on a drawing relates to how you feel about what you are doing, what you are thinking and how drawings ‘speak’ to ourselves and to others.
Date: 5 June 2010 10am – 4pm
