The first of Marcia Teusink’s drawing workshops took place in Dover Museum on 4 October 2014. The workshop started with short warm-up drawings in the gallery, with participants selecting a variety of objects to draw from the exhibition of WW1 artefacts. Everyone then moved on to a longer drawing. Then it was time for a short break and a move to the education room and a chance to make new drawings or use the observational work made in the gallery in a range of multi-media work.
Here is some feedback from the participants:
“I normally get ‘itchy feet’ and have to be doing something productive in terms of work, but it was refreshing to be productive in terns of leisure and creativity.”
“Thanks very much. A great chance to do something very special.”
The most surprising thing: “using the side of the pencil to sketch first.”
The most interesting thing learnt: “the different darkness of pencils giving differing effects“
