The third online exhibition presents a series of works made by BAEC learners in the Drawing and Sketching Autumn Course with Mania Row.
‘As part of my Drawing and Sketching twelve week course with my adult learners at Bromley Adult Education College, I wanted to introduce observational drawing of still life objects with a difference. We looked at both Braque and Picasso and their use of Cubist still life - I introduced seven pewter tankards with greyhound handles (unusual objects to stimulate curiosity) and each learner had to bring in an object of their choice and make careful drawings using a pencil and hatching and shading. Working in pairs, they had 35 minutes to draw their three objects in an arrangement and then move it to view another side of the same arrangement from another angle. We used charcoal and pastels or charcoal and watercolour and restricted colours to just two - much like Picasso had done during his Cubist period. Learners had an opportunity to visit Tate Modern with me and look at Picasso and others in the Poetry and Dream section during the term. Learners were surprised and pleased by the results they achieved just by looking at simple objects from three different viewpoints’.
