A brand new workshop in collaboration with the brilliant John Close- taking you into galleries and in front of some of the most fantastic art London has to offer!
Join London Drawing tutor and art history fan John Close for an afternoon of insights and drawing in epic journey across the 18th Century, exploring how artists related stories of turbulent times, revolutions and the Enlightenment.
We will be looking at the eighteenth century with paintings by artists such as William Hogarth, Johan Zoffany and Nathaniel Hone- how these paintings were shaped by European influences, and were also a reaction to them. Artists of this period were exploring the realms of the British Empire, as well as using art to convey fables, conversations and social comments about the times they lived in. We will take a journey through Tate Britain’s rooms to discuss some of the ideas within these paintings, before looking at practical approaches to drawings from paintings.

Museum Sketch is a new series of tutor led gallery visits. We will host a talk about the subjects and histories of the featured artists with a theme which links the work together and then direct a session of drawing, allowing you to work directly from the displays. The session is tutor led and designed to provide in depth information and exciting drawing opportunities.
