London Drawing Workshop
Gallery in Trafalgar Square or on the South bank. Then it’s off with
sketchbooks and an array of art materials to get to grips with the views
and landmarks of London . Your tutor will have lots of fun ideas and
exercises to get you started. It is all about engaging in the process of
drawing, experimenting with techniques and connecting with what you are
looking at. You will go away with a sketchbook full of images creating
lasting memories of place more evocative than any photograph.
Will Lunn organised his first exhibition, including two internationally renowned artists, aged just seventeen. He has previously worked at a number of London galleries, before he set up Sumarria Lunn Gallery with Vishal Sumarria at twenty. After Sumarria Lunn, at twenty-five he opened Copperfield, an independent contemporary art gallery just south of Tate Modern. He is a graduate of the Courtauld Institute of Art and prior to becoming a curator and gallerist, he has been exhibited both in England and abroad as an artist working under another name. He sees his work as a curator as an extension of that practice - bringing pre-existing objects with pre-existing concepts together in a space to create new meaning.

She teaches drawing and painting in schools and at her studio in Sussex and conducts curated walks for groups interested in the 19th century visionary painter Samuel Palmer.

Her drawing experiences range from working with the figure, to landscape and urban sketching. She runs regular drawing workshops in Brighton and also at the Camden Arts Centre in London.
