Drawn to the Page
3 October 2015


Drawn to the Page is back!

This workshop will focus on the paintings by artist, Rachel Howard. Her distinctive, abstract paintings in her current exhibition, At Sea, depict a multitude of human experiences and emotions and, for this exhibition, she has created a significant body of new work themed around experiences of the sea.

Learn about the art on display and develop your own creative responses to the paintings, working in prose, poetry or autobiography.

Through a combination of group discussions, writing exercises, individual writing time and sharing in a group, you'll get the very most from the gallery experience.

Saturday 3 October, 2pm - 5pm

£30 – or you can book two Drawn to the Page workshops this season for a discounted £50 (other workshops are being held at Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne and De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill)

Book your place through the New Writing South website. 

No previous knowledge of either art or writing is necessary to enjoy these sessions. All you’ll need to bring is your notebook and pen. All writers who attend are offered the opportunity to publish their writing on the Drawn to the Page blog, which is updated monthly. 

You can listen to what happens in a Drawn to the Page session on the BBC Radio 4 Open Book programme here

The sessions will be facilitated by writer and artist, Wendy Ann Greenhalgh. Wendy Ann is part of the New Writing South Creative Learning Team and an experienced writing tutor, as well as an arts educator who’s worked in galleries all over the South East.
