DRAWN TO THE SKYLINE
Saturday 24 February
10.30am-1pm  at Blavatnik Building, Tate Modern,  Bankside;
£45 from http://se1.info/2CuXhWH
Launching a new series of 'Drawn to the Skyline' walkshops,
Ruth Broadbent will entice you to master the art of
experimental 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 walkshop begins at Tate Modern's
viewing gallery on level 10 of the Blavatnik Building. 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.
