Still Life Drawing at the Pitt Rivers Museum

My friend, ol’ studio chum, the super talented, uber friendly, down-to-earth, and painstakingly observant Cath Watson has created an opportunity for people to see beyond the curio in the museum cabinet and join a glass-free drawing group at the Pitt Rivers.

The sessions will be untutored but Cath will be on-hand to guide and make sure no-one gets up to no good with the objects from Pitt Rivers Museum’s Founding Collection (donated by General Pitt-Rivers in 1884!). Read more and reserve your space here.

Cath can draw!

And what’s more… drawing group participants will be invited to submit their drawings to the upcoming ‘Makers Month’ event in the Gallery at the Old Fire Station, taking place in April 2014. Cath explains,
“Part of a series of events, each focusing on a different kind of making, April’s event is given over to anything that can be contained on two dimensions, from drawing to painting to photography.”

p.s. Catch Cath (and/or her work) tonight at The Missing Bean coffee shop on Turl Street, Oxford at the opening of her exhibition, A Catalogue of Uncertainty, a collaboration with Seb Thomas – 7.30pm kick-off (not sure how long the exhibition’s on for).
