Drawing Exchange will be setting exercises in response
to the works entered into The Nunhead Open which excepts
artwork from both amateur and professional artists a like.
The Nunhead Open is organised by The Surgery and is part of
Nunhead Arts Week.
The Drawing Exchange started with a brief discussion regarding entries into the Nunhead Open and the relationships between the amateur and professional artist’s work with Jacqueline Utley one of the organisers.
1. Chalk Connections. Look at the show and find a connection that you would like to highlight between the works. When we have all drawn our connections a drawing on the parquet floor will be born.
2. Box Animal ( After George Tuner Gale’s Tiger)
We made box animals based on George’s ingenious paper tiger sculpture and using other animal art pieces in the show as inspiration.
3. Graph paper section
Two artists have made drawings using graph paper in the show. Select a section of an art work to draw from the show using the sections of the graph paper.
4. Text to speech to draw.
Text is most present in the exhibition. I am going to act like a text to speach machine on a computer. Make a drawing using the text you hear.
