Bringing our collection to life

drawingclassFeb copyParticipants at GHM’s Drawing Classes set about capturing our collection on paper.

Using the technique of pencil and ink wash they created strong, powerful images. After some quick 10 bottle copyminute drawings – a sample of the many produced are below – they moved into the heart of the museum. (See Andrew Eddington’s picture on Facebook.)

The Drawing Class was inspired by the Museums collection of documentary drawings done by artist Denis Reed who was a patient in the 1950s and the project Captured on Paper is funded through the Esmee Fairbairn Collections Fund.
