we went along to the Tracing Materiality exhibition on Sunday. the artists had been doing some continuous drawings on large rolls of paper, as well as wall drawings, and working with wax. I’m going to try make it to the talk on the 20th march too. I loved all the work! and there was a stack of drawing books for me to chase up also 🙂

Hi! Im interesting in mark making but having trouble finding books to read that are it geared to primary school or how to draw… Saw your photo of stack of books but can’t read the titles….did you follow any up, have any recommendation s?
hi Sally, sorry for the delayed response. my favourite drawing books are “Experimental Drawing” by Robert Kaupelis & “Drawing Projects – an exploration of the language of drawing” by Mick Maslen and Jack Southern – both of these are more experimental drawing / mark making; they have exercises to try as well as examples from artists. “Drawn to stitch – Line, drawing and mark-making in textile art” by Gwen Hedley is good for mark making also. for kids (& the young at heart), Carla Sonheim’s classes/books might suit – she has such a fun and playful style. I hope this helps!
