DRAWN TO THE SKYLINE
Saturday 20 January
Starts at Blavatnik Building, Tate Modern,  Bankside; £45
from https://drawn_to_the_skyline.eventbrite.co.uk
Launching a new series of 'Drawn to the Skyline' walkshops,
Ruth Broadbent will entice you to master the art of drawing
and sketching the London skyline, from both the south and
the north riversides. Drawing is considered in its widest
sense, from pen and pencil on paper to performance, so there
will be plenty of opportunities to embrace imagination and
abstract, as well as real and observed details. The session
will begin at Tate Modern. The gallery offers 360 degree
views of London's skyline. Suitable for beginners and those
more experienced. You will be in a small group - the
walkshop capacity is limited to 8 people. Ideal for anyone
wanting to generate new artwork and ideas to develop their
own art practice or to add to a student art portfolio. Drawn
to the Skyline walkshops are produced by the Museum of
Walking.
