Free Drawing School Online with Pester and Rossi – Part Two

10:00am-12:00pm, 24 October 2020

Free Drawing School Online led by Ruby Pester and Nadia Rossi

Join guest artists Pester and Rossi on Saturday 17 and Saturday 24 October at 10am for a two part drawing challenge suitable for families and anyone to try.

Free Drawing School Online challenge is a free series of online events specially designed by artists, inviting you to get involved with at home guided live with an artist.

This week’s challenge is led by Pester and Rossi. Ruby Pester and Nadia Rossi have been working together since 2008, creating live art, installation and public interventions in response to people and places. Their work celebrates the power of group action. Recent major projects include Infinity Pitch at BALTIC Gateshead, a residency at Glasgow Sculpture Studios and Venice Architecture Biennale 2018. They are currently working on a project called ‘Playing Out’ produced by Rule Of Threes which explores the radical play history of Bootle in Liverpool. Ruby and Nadia were lead artists for Hospitalfield’s Children’ Procession in 2017 celebrating pupils from Timmergreens and Muirfield Primary Schools step forwards into the next stage of their lives.

Touching Nature – Draw What You Feel
Exercises and experiments in drawing and touching to connect with nature during a pandemic when our sense of physical touch with others is limited.

Ruby and Nadia are setting instructions in two parts over two Saturdays. Join in with both or whichever one you can.
