West Bridgford Infant School respond to Performing Drawology 03 February 2016

Last week, 80 five and six year old’s from West Bridgford Infant School contributed to a collaborative drawing, inspired by our current exhibition, Performing Drawology.  Led by Holly Mills, Ana Souto and Anja Bendix (academic staff from the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment at NTU), there were three drawing sessions, consisting of 20 minutes each and approximately 25 children.

The first class used black pen to draw on four pieces of paper four metres long. Classical music was also played, which some of the pupils responded to:

The second class then used oil pastels to colour in some of the shapes drawn by the first class, and the third group used paint sticks to colour in the shapes and add more lines:



These drawings will be exhibited in the Atrium Space at the Performing Drawology closing event on Thursday 11 February 2016 from 5 pm – 8 pm, along with drawings created by Architecture and Interior Architecture students from NTU.

If you’d like to attend the Performing Drawology closing event, simply RSVP via email to confirm your attendance.
