Walking Talking and Drawing at West Dean – A creative experience.

These courses encourage people to find or rekindle their relationship with drawing and mark making. Drawing is seeing and the use and practice of using a variety of techniques to translate what you are seeing.

There is no such thing as the perfect drawing and giving people the opportunity at every stage of their careers to record what they see outside can be illuminating for their professional and creative lives. The workshops take students out into the landscape for a series of timed sketches, which culminate in the opportunity to talk and reflect about the work and examine how they might extend their approach through making simple books.
