Drawing Time!
Leeds Corn Exchange. September 2010.

Drawing Time! is a live drawing extravaganza to take place in the magnificent Corn Exchange in Leeds. The event will bring together 46 artists who draw, ranging from traditional to experimental approaches to the medium, in a fun hour-long event. Everyone is most welcome to come and see the 46 artists at work on Saturday 31st July!

The event will make use of the circular structure of the Corn Exchange by having 46 pieces of paper displayed on the first-floor and each piece of paper will eventually have a drawing by a different artist. All the drawings will be done in the space in an hour.

Some parameters will be set for the drawing, the position in the building where the work will eventually hang will dictate how much time artists will get to make their drawing. That is, if positioned at 2 o’ clock the artist will get 5 minutes to make their drawing and if positioned at 10 o’ clock there will be 50 minutes.

It is hoped that this playful approach will highlight the joyous nature of drawing and allow an accessible entrance-point for the public into a variety drawing techniques. It will also be a great opportunity to bring together lots of interesting artists to discuss a medium.
All drawing will commence at 2pm.
