The Modern Still Life Drawing Workshop...
The Mark Makers is a London based pop up drawing workshop, run by working practitioners and friends Alice Nyong and Becky Noy.
Fun and non - stuffy; the workshops offer a new way of interpreting the traditional medium of still life, which people perhaps remember from school, more often than not in a boring way. We wanted to turn this into something fun, using original props (Think disco balls, tropical fruit and colour; no skulls or dead flowers in sight) and creating lots of drawing exercises to warm people up, and bring out creativity, whilst learning something about how to use the materials, and generally having a couple of hours to yourself to make marks on a page. With a curated kit of materials to take away to help you get drawing at home, You leave with some great original artwork to take away, as well as a cool kit of materials and fun tips sheets for drawing at home and a thirst to learn more.
The classes are great for all skill sets, whether you’re a master mark maker or a total beginner.
