Drawing is Free created a series of three booklets of drawing projects inspired by the work selected for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize, 2020︎︎︎.

They are an invitation to draw - whatever your age, experience, or level of confience.

The booklets cover three themes:

  • How can a drawing tell a story?
  • What are the particular qualities of a drawing that enable us to communicate personal experience? 
  • How can I articulate my stories through drawing so that I can convey to others what I have experienced?

  • How is it possible to record time passing in a static image?
  • How is the whole body implicated in the practice of drawing - its breath, internal rhythms, fragilities?
  • How does a drawing practice exercise our patience, give us the ability to slow down and be intensely present in time?

  • In what ways does drawing have a distinct function within a process?
  • How can drawing an object or space help us to understand it?
  • Where in our daily lives does drawing have a tangible purpose?

Drawing is Free was also in virtual residence during the exhibition of Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2020, running online events and discussions.
