Originary Arts invite you to see and draw differently with contemporary figures juxtaposed against seventeenth-century Italian paintings. Give life drawing a go, experiment with mark-making and build your creative confidence.
They are a Brighton-based arts company who invite people to play with colour, shape, creativity and curiosity.
Drawing from life and observation has been an important artistic tradition and practice across cultures and art movements. This inclusive workshop invites you to be inspired by fashion illustration, as you capture theatrical tableaux featuring a costumed figure, wearing bold contemporary clothing and headwear, set against the unique backdrop of the National Gallery Collection.
Originary Arts encourage you to use what you see as just the starting point, interpreting it with imagination and your unique interpretation.
