The Free Drawing School invites you to take part in a programme of experimental drawing inspired by Hospitalfield’s historic walled gardens. Organised by Fergus Tibbs and involving other experienced artists the drawing will take place in the studios, historic rooms, woodland and gardens. Tibbs has created a base for the Free Drawing School near to the other studios which will be revealed during the Summer Festival.

This intensive three week period will be the start of the ongoing Free Drawing School programme which will continue throughout the year. This will include a regular Friday afternoon session for local secondary school pupils.

The drop in sessions of the Free Drawing School and other special events feature in our What’s On listings. We will also be carrying out ongoing projects with partnership groups.

If you would like to get involved in the Free Drawing School please get in touch.
