RWA Drawing Lab 23-4-13

A day spent as a 'sitting artist' in the RWA's Drawing Lab proved to be a highly enjoyable and instructive one. The Drawing Lab has been created for the duration of Drawn 2013 as an interactive artist-led studio space designed to encourage audience participation and interaction. I certainly found that visitors were quick to engage in conversation about the exhibition (comments being very positive) and, with gentle encouragement, some were brave enough to stop and draw. I also met fellow exhibiting artists Jane Lee and Barrington Tabb which allowed further space for dialogue about the show and some exchanges on art in general.
