Drawing Matters is an inclusive art initiative to get people connecting through the practice of drawing and mark-making. It’s a great way for beginners and improvers to engage in the joy of artistic practice with tailored workshops and guided tuition in a supportive environment. This is an all-levels group, so even if you have been creating art for years and are looking for somewhere to connect with others whilst developing and expanding your own visual language, this is a great place to explore. Whether you are developing your existing art skills or wanting to develop a new awareness this adult workshop provides the groundwork. Drawing is a skill and expression connecting us to many subject areas; art, design technology, fashion, textiles, engineering, architecture, graphic design, illustration and more. We find ourselves doodling for fun, to occupy our imaginations and even when preparing for presentations. Drawing is a part of our everyday lives, even if we are not aware of it, it infiltrates and enriches us. Each class will have a specific subject focus and may be extended over a couple of weeks if required. All materials will be provided but you are also welcome to bring your own along.

Raw Ground Arts helps develop new and innovative ideas through Creative 'Unlimited' Thinking. Utilising the medium of art RGA have identified transferable skills that can be used effectively in business, making it beneficial to specific roles, aiming to help employees to think creatively, work collaboratively and bring ideas to fruition. Directors, Stuart and Tahira understand how creative skills can be used to help enhance business productivity, boost morale, strengthen team dynamics and improve cohesion. They have consulted for organisations, which include; Royal Botanic Gardens - Kew, The British Museum, The British Council, Historic Royal Palaces, Museum of London, Science Learning Centre - London, The Dutch Embassy, Allen & Overy and Campaign for Drawing. rawgroundarts.com
