Draw and Explore

New Adult Evening Class

Next week we are launching a new adult evening class. Draw and Explore is a six week programme led by local artists. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from these professional artists while honing their skills across a variety of drawing techniques.

The first two sessions will be led by seven-time Bermuda Biennial artist Dr Edwin M.E. Smith (pictured above with his 2020 Biennial artwork Transience). Dr Smith will be exploring the possibilities of charcoal and loose mark-making.

The following two weeks will be led artist and educator Richard Sutton, who will be using hatching to build tones with charcoal pencils on newsprint. 

This will be followed by two sessions with Rachel Swinburne, a former Bermuda Biennial artist and founder of the Peaceful Art Protest. She will be focusing on key drawing fundamentals through a range of experimental continuous line, contour drawing and gesture drawing exercises.

Classes take place in the gallery on Wednesday evenings. Doors open at 5pm and class takes place between 5.30pm and 7pm. The course, which begins on October 27, is $125 per person and open to BNG members. The fee includes a glass of wine at each session.

All skill levels are invited to join. Limited to 15 spaces. Participants must supply their own materials. Please note that BNG members now receive a 10% discount at the Stationery Store.
