Artist Gemma Anderson and botanist Dr Colin French lead CMADC’s first field trip and drawing workshop.
The workshop will explore field and studio-based drawing practices. Combining artistic and scientific approaches, Gemma Anderson and Colin French will apply the practices of drawing, microscopy, observation and walking, to discover the shared forms and symmetries of plant specimens at a macro-scale in the field and at a micro-scale in the CMADC studio at CAST. Following a morning visit to Loe Bar, the afternoon will provide opportunities to observe and draw using a collection of Vickers Microscopes (kindly loaned by Exeter University).
CAST Café will offer a simple and delicious lunch. Materials will be provided, but participants are asked to bring paper and pencils if possible. Previous drawing experience helpful but not required. Minimum age 16.
