BERLIN DRAWING ROOM: LEARNING TO SEE LIKE AN ARTIST

BERLIN DRAWING ROOM: LEARNING TO SEE LIKE AN ARTIST

“How does the act of drawing from observation affect our perception of the world around us?” asks visual artist Mira O’Brien on the first day of our Drawing Workshop. Motivated by the belief that everyone can learn how to draw, Mira founded the Berlin Drawing Room in 2011 in her Kreuzberg atelier. Since then it has expanded to offer a variety of workshops led by professional artists, with a focus on drawing and painting. While the approach is rigorous, most workshops are geared towards beginners, with step-by-step instruction covering foundation skills. The subject matter varies from botanical-themed workshops held in the idyllic Prinzessinnengarten to mixed media or papermaking workshops. Coming up soon is an anatomy drawing workshop (17.9-15.10.2018), which focuses on body structure and muscle dynamics, and a fungi botanical drawing workshop (26.9-24.10.2018), using foraged mushrooms. Both workshops include a field trip — find out more and book your spot here. (Text: Sibylla Baumgartner / Photos: Mira O’Brien)
