Drawing Picasso: Life Drawing Workshop hosted by LDG

logosmall

Fri 14 April 2017

Join London Drawing Group as we return to our original home at Lewisham Arthouse for a whole day of Life-Drawing this Easter Friday!

With easels, materials and our wonderful model provided, we will be offering a tutored session inspired by Picasso’s Demoiselles D’avignon, focusing on the themes of human abstraction and the possibilities of how we deal with the human figure in drawing. Tutored by our three LDG artists, the day will begin with a series of short poses and exercises designed to get you to think differently about the way you naturally approach your drawing, building to longer sustained poses in the afternoon that will allow you to create a completed work.

At just £30 for the whole day’s drawing this is a real steal, and trust us, it will be a treat for everyone involved! Book quick – these tickets won’t hang about for long!

Laura X Carlé: Material World

meet the artist

23rd July – 4th September 2016

Summer Family activity for all ages
Tate Modern, Macaulay Gallery

Touch, bend, balance and play with large scale, colourful shapes and forms.

How do artists handle materials in their studio and how is this different to the way we experience the same materials in a gallery? Material World invites visitors of all ages to experience an immersive artwork and to handle, compose and play with materials together. Improvise with materials. Try touching the ceiling or two walls at the same time. Try connecting all the shapes together. Go under. Go over. Wrap a shape around you!

Material World is linked to the Materials and Objects collection display on Level 4 and devised by Laura X Carlé with Tate Families.

Drop-in for special artist-led sessions with the creator of Material World; Laura X Carlé.

Monday 8th August 2016, 2 – 5pm
Saturday 13th August 2016, 11am – 2pm
Friday 19th August 2016, 11am – 2pm

Making Works Returns to Leybridge Estate

Making Works 2016
30th June – 22nd September 2016
(Thursdays and selected Saturdays, dates below)

On the grass @ Leybridge Estate, Lee Green, London SE12

Affinity Sutton, Lee Green Lives Community Centre and Lewisham Arthouse are pleased to announce that free Making Works workshops for young people will be available to Leybridge Estate residents for the third year running this Summer 2016.

Making Works creative workshops are open to all children and young people living at the estate as well as their parents on a drop-in basis. Participate and you could take home a little trophy, such as a spooky toy spider or a colourful flag!

These fun and engaging workshops have been commissioned and funded by the Affinity Sutton Community Fund and Groundwork. They are delivered by qualified artists and art tutors from Lewisham Arthouse, with practical support from the local Lee Green Lives Community Centre.

The project has run twice previously in the Summer’s of 2014 and 2015. In those past two years, children made fantastic and outrageous houses and castles; their own space ships; speedy go-cards; pyramids and much more, whilst learning how to use power tools along the way. All materials such as wood, colourful tapes, DIY tools, paper and paint are provided.

Lead artist and workshop tutor Laura X Carle says that it has been truly amazing to see the children enjoying themselves so much whilst learning practical and transferable skills for life when taking part in the creative activities. ‘They learn to share, to collaborate, to make practical decisions together, for instance when they build a house there is so much teamwork going on’. Laura and her team are looking forward to working with children who participated before as much as they are welcoming new participants.

Parents are welcome to join for a complete session or just a part of it. Children under 4 years must be accompanied by an adult throughout the whole workshop. Parents have commented on how much they enjoyed taking part together with their little ones. Rebecca, Isaac’s mum, said ‘it gets the children outside, getting creative and making together’. Dan, Natan’s Dad, commented ‘it was such a great idea to get the kids and adults outside, working together and having fun’.

For further enquiries about the workshops, please contact Adila Rose on 020 8285 4165 or Laura X Carle on 07789 362 069.
