Practice drawing as a way of exploring Kingston’s art and heritage and experiment using a variety of techniques and media guided by local artist Louise Anderson.
Not drawn or sketched in years, or just want to be creative? Why not try out something new? On a Saturday afternoon at Kingston Museum.
Under the watchful eye and expertise of local artist Louise Anderson explore the museum collection whilst taking inspiration from Thames Valley Art Society‘s exhibition (12-27 October 2018).
This is an opportunity to take time out from your busy day, by being mindful, by sitting and being still in the moment, by simply observing and drawing what you see without pressure to create perfection.
There will be an opportunity to experiment using a variety of techniques and media, including pencil, charcoal and ink. All materials provided. All levels of experience welcome!
You will leave with your own creative pieces to treasure.
COST: £10/per participant. Suitable for adults.
Payment is to be made on the day – CASH ONLY

The work references my own feelings of mortality and time passing of aging drawing on former work linking to identity and matriarchy female history spanning 159 years. ‘Daisy’ was the name of the unborn child I never had, she would of been 16 years of age this year…
Reference to Wilfred Owens poem… A Terre – “Pushing up daisies,” is their creed, you know.

The National Saturday Club is an incredible project where 13-16 years have the opportunity to experience and try out different artistic practices and thinking in a fun way. There were 71 clubs with over 1500 members.
I was able to be involved in this project by teaching at Reading College – Activate Learning. I worked with an extraordinary group of young individuals, some of my group were only 12 years of age. Printmaking focused primarily with my teaching; mono-printing, lino-printing, including collage, text, making zig-zag books and finally making a large collaborative installation piece 2.4 metres x 2.4 metres.
This has been an amazing few months, challenging, but rewarding and I was thrilled to meet one of the trustees Edmund de Waal at the Private View who complimented our installation.
