Braw to Observe - The Big Draw Workshop


As part of this year's Big Draw and Ruskin 200 celebrations, artist Tom Jones will be at The Hive to lead a drawing workshop aimed at everyone from beginners, to those who would like to develop their skills and ideas.

Inspired by the building and John Ruskin's notion of drawing to observe and comprehend, artists are encouraged to focus their eye on the miniature in order to gather information and gain knowledge.

Workshop details:
This workshop runs from 11.30am until 2.30pm
The workshop is free
Drawers of all abilities welcome. Suited to adults and children age 12+
Please only book a space(s) if you can commit to turning up on the day!
Please bring a packed lunch. Drinks provided.


About Tom Jones
In an earlier life, Tom taught drawing to Access, Foundation and undergraduate students in the Faculty of Art & Design at Birmingham City University, but now co-produces creative learning activities with the general public. He recently founded Artscoop Central, a company of artist facilitators, and is active in No 11 Arts, an organisation fronting a unique city-wide network of Local Arts Forums, one in each of the ten districts of Birmingham.
He encourages people to draw on the basis that if you can play naughts and crosses - you can 'make marks with meaning' - a reasonable definition of drawing. For both himself, as someone who constantly draws, and for others, Tom looks on drawing not as an medium for art making but as a special way of understanding more about ourselves and the worlds in which we live.
