Movement & Stillness in Performative Drawing

STILLNESS – A Day of Drawing Performances & Workshops, by Draw to Perform

Sunday 11 July 2021, 10:30-17:30. Artsadmin – Toynbee Studios (The Court Room), London


Draw to Perform invites you to a day of live drawing performances and workshops by local artists. Drawing performance is a stream of performance art in which artists create their artwork in front of a live audience while communicating with the viewers. 

We invite all art lovers, drawing fans and students to attend this event, to follow the Draw to Perform and to participate in the discussion.

The upcoming workshop session by Draw to Perform will include three bookable workshops, provided by artists, dancers, and performers. The workshops will explore drawing performance and strategies for forming a dialog between drawing, sound, process and performance. Participants will draw live, share and discuss their outcomes and ideas. Workshops will target different groups and issues in drawing and performance and focus on the subjects of Movement & Stillness in Performative Drawing. It will allow the general public the opportunity to experience an art form first hand, work with and be tutored by some of the leading artists in their field.
