THE DRAWING SALON PROJECT
We recently sponsored the Drawing Salon Project, an initiative in conjunction with the Dulwich Picture Gallery. The project involved a programme of drawing classes, held over 12 weeks at the gallery, for eighteen year 8 and 9 students from Southwark Secondary Schools. A selection of drawings were displayed in an exhibition at our 85 Southwark Gallery in January 2016.
In keeping with the practice’s appreciation for drawing, the classes helped the students to progress and mature their drawing skills, aiming to support, challenge and encourage their passion and skill for the craft. The project was creatively led and taught by two artists: Benjamin Senior and Jo Lewis
