DRAWGUST18 Brighton themed drawing a day

As readers of Drawing Space will know, Drawing is at the heart of things, and it’s great to get into the practice of drawing, all the time, and sharing that work .

There are a number of excellent drawathons throughout the year like Inktober or 24Hour Comic Day .

Last year the School of Art took part in Inktober, actually it turned out to be Uni wide.

This year, as part of our pre entry activity for our new students we are trialling  “Draw-Gust”, a gentle Summer activity that should act as a warm up for University life.

To coincide with our students online enrolment, and for the last two weeks of August we’ll be running the Draw-Gust Challenge:

  • a daily drawing on the theme of the day,
  • posted online with the hashtag #Brightondrawgust18 

The themes are listed below, along with names of some folk who volunteered to be featured artists, we’ll also check the hashtag and feature what we find on the drawing space site:
