Free Drawing School

This summer Hospitalfield will pilot its new Free Drawing School during the Summer Festival with events between 18 June and 7 July.

Drop in sessions on Tuesday to Saturday afternoons from 2 – 4pm throughout the Summer Festival.

The Free Drawing School is an annual artist commission. Fergus Tibbs is the artist who has been selected to shape the Free Drawing School in its first year.

The Free Drawing school will invite groups and members of the public 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 which run from 19 June – 7 July on Tuesday – Saturday afternoons 2 – 4pm and other special events will feature in our What’s On listings. If you would like to get involved in the Free Drawing School please get in touch or just come along to the drop in sessions.

We will also be carrying out ongoing projects and sessions with partnership groups outside of these times, if you are part of these groups and want to check info with us please get in touch.
