01/11/2016: ON GOYA led by Lucy Mcgeown.
Lucy will be teaching this day-long workshop as part of our exciting collaboration with the BRIDGET RILEY ART FOUNDATION, with a day spent working from the incredible selection of Francisco Goya drawings housed in the Prints and Drawings Department at the British Museum.
Hosted in the fabulous oak panelled Study Room of the British Museum, which houses over 50,000 drawings and over two million prints dating from the beginning of the fifteenth century up to the present day, Lucy Mcgeown will be teaching a day-long immersive workshop based on the work of the Spanish Painter, Francisco Goya. Drawing from centuries of tradition in Drawing from the Masters, this workshop will allow you to get up close and personal with original Goya sketches for his collection: Los Caprichos alongside a selection of other lesser known drawings and inks.
During the morning session we are delighted to announce that our hosts the BRAF will be delivering a short talk on the history of the works in question as well as some history about the study room, with the remainder of the day made up of a series of drawing exercises and time spent sketching from the works.
