What were the very first themes you explored in your art practice?


I have been doodling and sketching ever since I was a child, I had an obsession for all things animal and dinosaur, and like most children, a love for the fantastical. Stories of knights, romans, castles and conquest left me constantly envisaging my young self in these ancient and exciting worlds.

Most of my early doodling centred around animals however, drawings of elephants and dinosaurs usually taking centre stage. I would draw directly from my toys or TV programmes, ‘walking with dinosaurs’ being a particular favourite of mine.

Sound Sketching

with Babette van Gerwen

This class is shaped to encourage fun and confidence in an intuitive creative process. You’ll be directed through a series of drawing exercises to pieces of music designed to help you tune in and respond expressively as you listen.

Each workshop will have a different playlist with varying types of music ranging from jazz to experimental electronic.

Expect to get out of your comfort zone and experience a new way of making art that challenges conventions and will help shake up your creative practice (or inspires you to initiate one)!

Come meet other creative, open-minded people and have a blast making some art! All materials provided and all artistic abilities welcome.

Times: 10th and 24th August (7-9 PM)

Cost: £10
