During last Tuesday’s open-access workshop, a group of relative strangers came together to produce a series of collaborative drawings – one mark at a time. There were periods of concentration and periods of conversation. Some of the drawings were pattern based, some contained narrative or humorous elements; but all helped us to learn more about each other and the rich diversity of human creativity we share.
‘By drawing, man has extended his ability to see and comprehend what he sees.’ [Spencer Gore (1878 – 1914)]. And, as I discovered whilst assisting at the latest Underlined project workshop, by drawing I can also extend my ability to connect with others with whom I draw, increasing our shared ability to ‘see’.
To take part in a free underlined art activity yourself, or to see more of the work from the underlined project, do come along on Thursday 29th March 2018 to the opening of the Underlined Project Exhibition at Hull Central Library, 4-7pm.
