FEELS GOOD TO DRAW THIS BADLY – Reflective exercises to get you through weird times.
In July multidisciplinary artist Gorkie hosted an online drawing class for those with little to no drawing skills.
As Gorkie said ‘time has turned into a weird glob’ and this workshop was a chance to step away from words for a while and be guided by some prompts during this uncertain period. The aim was not to produce a piece of fine art, but to loosen up and get feelings out on the page.
Participants joined Gorkie for 90 minutes of exercises but you can catch a short cut of the session below.
