Draw In - a learning event to celebrate drawing! Belfast 2014

Home page from the website
I am delighted to bring you details about a drawing and painting event I am organising this summer on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st August. Full details are here

A weekend of talks, demonstrations and workshops with some amazing artists from around the world,  including Illustrator PJLynch, Colleen Barry, who is described as one of the greatest painters today, Katherine Tyrrell who writes the fantastic artist resource blog 'Making A Mark', and Paul Foxton who is passionate about drawing education.

As well as the weekend, there are two five day workshops, in Figure Drawing with Colleen Barry and oil painting still life with Matt Weigle, who has recently graduated from the Grand Central Academy in New York. I attended a week long workshop last year at GCA, and met Matt on the course. I attended the GCA with the aim of improving my own work and also to invite tutors back to this part of Europe, extending their reach to a wider audience.

It has been an honour to gather these creatives together for this event - they are all interested in teaching and sharing their knowledge with you - students attending will feel empowered and go away with new and exciting skills.

The event is open to everyone, from beginner to more experienced, and all levels are catered for.

Please look at the website, and be inspired.
