ALLIES AND MORRISON SOCIAL DRAWING EVENT

Last week Allies and Morrison held a social drawing event for staff led by tutors from Drawing at Work. The evening was split into three activities: life drawing, tonal studies (buildings and celebrity portraits) and paper folding which produced some amazing abstract forms. There was a vast variety of work produced and everything was pinned up at the end of the evening. The best examples won prizes: congratulations to Jovita Stakionyte, Luca Saiani, Tatiana Telles Ferreira, Karabo Turner, Jane Manning and Holly Barker.
