Wolstenholme Projects – Stage ONE: the drawing house

stage-one-100Stage ONE: the drawing house
30 October – 2 November 2009
This exhibition focuses on the importance of drawing in exercising the creative mind and communicating ideas; whether it be in pencil, ink, or watercolour, or on paper, envelopes, or the wall. As part of the exhibition there will be a Spooky Corner in which people are invited to share their images of Halloween, by exploring their own creativity with drawing.  Our in-house ghosts will provide you with all the invisible ink and pumpkin juice you shall need!
There are several stages to making creative work, the first being inspiration and ideas.  Traditionally, artists use drawing to explore ideas and begin the creative process: either by drawing from life or processing ideas onto paper.  This skill is increasingly ignored in fine art courses, as people turn to developing ideas in their head or in words. This exhibition is to remind us of its importance.
