Come along to participate in Naomi Kendrick’s live group drawing performance Drawn To The Beat
“Different strands of drawing processes have emerged over time to complement or provoke different states of mind; I draw alone, in response to music and while collaborating with musicians in a studio or in front of a live audience. These live drawing performances and my participatory drawing events invite an audience to temporarily inhabit, through observation or direct experience, these states for themselves.” Naomi Kendrick
