I’m delighted to be running a drawing day for all those people who say they can’t draw – but would like to have a go!
We will be working with objects in the exhibition ‘This Green and Pleasant Land’. You will have a day of exploring and experimenting with the wonderful activity of drawing.
Saturday 26th October 11am – 4pm £15 per person. Places are limited, please call 01926 742700 to book.
For me, this is what ‘The Contemporary Survey of Compton Verney’ is all about. A mum and her son walk to Viewing Box No1 at the top of East Park, to record the landscape in front of them looking down on the house – the mum by drawing, the son by writing. Their contributions have now been added to the visitors survey, something that all ages are participating in.
Well you need sustaining when visiting Open Studios! I’m opening my studio for the next two weeks, as part of Warwickshire Open Studio, and there is always plenty of tea/coffee and cake along with the art. This year I will be showing 50/50 Word of the Day, a collaboration with author David Southwell. Lots more to see, including my beautiful 1866 Albion Hand Press.
