" I've always loved drawing but too often couldn't reconcile my excitement with the still life of a bowl of fruit or stationary naked model in front of me.

I would love to do a London Drawing workshop, they produce such vibrant interesting work which comes from a process that positively fizzes with living energy and movement. London Drawing is surely 'true' life drawing in action."

London Drawing Presents:
The Drawing Theatre in collaboration with Alchemist Theatre: Liberation 

Paint is thrown, dripped and pressed onto the naked body, as art and theatre combine in an explosion of colour and movement.... 

Join us in heart of London Bridge for a dynamic and visually stunning day of drawing action as we join forces with Alchemist Theatre to explore lush colour and dynamic physical theatre. Our sets and performance will be inspired by their production 'Liberation', which combines raw movements and physical action painting. We will be working closely with The Achemist to develop a day of long periods of stillness and short bursts of action to create a living, morphing collage for you to be inspired by to create your own masterpieces of imagination through drawing and collage. Get ready to leave your average life drawing class at the door....
