Today I was a Drawing Marshall! Sounds grand doesn’t it?…does it?….hmm….
Anyway, it was for a wonderful project devised by artist Terry Smith in conjunction with CCW (Chelsea, Camberwell and Wimbledon….colleges of art) called Draw, Cut, Tear. It was a one day project across all three art colleges with visiting lecturers, events and workshops. Everyone at each of the colleges was invited to do a drawing on an A4 piece of paper with the event stamp on it. The parameters were who i am or where i am as a starting point but these were very much open to interpretation. It was all about having fun with drawing and getting everyone involved from students to ground staff to lecturers and visitors. At the end of the day there was a one evening exhibition of the work in each of the colleges. Before they were taken down, the drawings were recorded with good quality photographs and collected up carefully. There will be an exhibition later featuring all of the drawing from all of the colleges and some may even be selected for an event at the national Portrait Gallery. I had a chat with Terry Smith this evening and I found his ideas about making art rather liberating. I look forward to hearing more of his ideas at the SpeakEasy event later this month.

  1. Fiona, this sounds like a lot of fun to be sure. And I adore what you did with this, too. I love this idea of drawing, cutting and tearing.

    Thanks for sharing here, Fiona.
