Drawing First aims to:
- Develop and extend drawing skills and
- Foster creative thinking in a variety of exciting learning contexts.
Mark firmly believes that, in the pursuit of every artistic endeavour, one should always put drawing first and says:
"Drawing is a great way to 'see' and a powerful means of personal expression and communication. Drawing can also be a journey of discovery, inspiring, reflective, therapeutic and fun."
Drawing First workshops and events are designed to explore drawing in order to:
- Promote active looking
- Encourage visual enquiry
- Enhance learning
- Stimulate creativity
These are offered to schools, colleges, universities, commercial organisations, museums, art clubs, churches and other community organisations, pitched at different levels of experience and satisfying a wide range of needs. Workshops may be of variable duration and embrace a diversity of drawing practices, techniques and graphic media.
