#DRAWINGYOURSPACE has its roots in the Drawing in Space two-day activity lead by Sarah Goudie that was a fundamental part of the Artist Teacher Scheme at Birmingham City University. It was part of the Arts in Education MA that Elena Thomas worked on. Both artists have gathered their experience of working on the course, developing individual practice and research in order to build the #DrawingYourSpace programme of activities. They have a particular concern and interest in developing women’s creative spaces and aim to investigate this further.
Spatial Drawing Sessions: Sarah Goudie leads two hour morning and evening sessions; offering the time and space to explore large scale drawing. Encouraging confidence in process.
Study Days (click the link for further info) – Click here for a short review of our first Women’s Study Day on A-N Review platform. Using spatial, large scale drawing and collaborative making to stimulate and consider material and space. We ponder on and wonder with each person; how to develop, protect and stimulate their creative practice.
Study Course: Currently under development: a 12 month course and final exhibition for mid-career women artists to explore and re-stimulate practice.

‘I recommend this course highly…. These days were really helpful for me : separating and sorting public and personal; introvert and extrovert’
‘ Having no artistic ‘credentials’, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the day. Before attending I did have concerns that I wouldn’t be ‘good’ enough to take part. This unease dissipated almost immediately…’
‘I sat on the train home and had to scribble in my notebook to stop all the ideas I’d had on the day from escaping!” “I enjoyed your very relaxed manner in facilitating discussion about our experiences of completing tasks.”
