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
begin at Tate Modern on the viewing gallery at the top 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.
