Victoria & Albert Museum
A brand new workshop from London Drawing in collaboration with John Close- taking you into galleries and in front of some of the most fantastic art London has to offer!
Join artist and art history fan John Close for an afternoon of insights and drawing in the fabulous Cast Courts at the V&A.
Opened in 1873, the Cast Courts display copies of some of the world’s most significant works of art reproduced in plaster, electrotype, photography, and digital media. The cast collection is famous for including reproductions of Michelangelo’s David, Trajan’s Column, and Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise, amongst many others.
Working from sculpture creates exciting and ingenious variations, and you will explore pencil and graphite techniques to deal with challenges such as descriptions of space and light, scale, form and composition. Often, gallery sketchers focus on one sculpture- in this session you will discuss a technical approach to structure an entire scene.
More about Museum Sketch
Museum Sketch is a new series of tutor led gallery visits. London Drawing will host a talk about the subjects and histories of the featured artists with a theme which links the work together. They will 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.
