Drawing Events

There will be two free drawing workshops open to all, at Paris College of Art from 3.30 - 6pm on 2nd June (when the vernissage of exhibition begins) led by Helene Fromen and Ioi Choi.

Live Workshops: The echo of the drawing

Part 1: A protocol for drawing (portraits) in pairs
Led by Helene Fromen @helenefr0men
Drawing as a gesture, a rhythm, a mimicry of the hand movement, two breaths that coordinate for a while, a partition.

Part 2: Ioi Choi @ioi.mp4  will work with her body as an “image generator” to inspire forms and collaborate with our drawn lines.

Please bring your sketchbook and materials you like to draw with.

Vernissage / Private View

The vernissage will take place on Friday 2nd June from 6pm - 8.30pm.

We’d be delighted to see you!

Do you want the drawing framed?
No, the drawings will be hung in a simple way with magnets, free and open to the air!  It is a humble, art-school space.

I have made work in a specific format that needs to be displayed in a certain way, is that possible?
Yes, send a note with details with the drawing and we will do our best.

Does the drawing have to have been made during Drawing is Free Monday session or Patreon workshops?
Yes please. This is the binding theme that brings the work together.

Will there be a publication?
Yes. Each work will be documented and collated as an exhibition catalogue with an introductory essay by  art writer Lillian Davies.
