What you'll do

Drawing with ink and pen, experience art for everyone.

We will be using inks with a brush and various warm-up techniques in pen and charcoal which I have adopted over time in order to understand art as an expressive avenue anyone can adopt.
Exploring botanical drawing, I offer guests the opportunity to have the tools to take up drawing as a passion or past time and teach the techniques which have helped me establish myself as a successful artist.
I will guide the participants through the first a series of warm up techniques to loosen the mind and understand making marks and strokes. From there we will experiment with ink and brush exploring forms and understanding the way ink moves as well as the shapes and detail of the our subjects. The last section of the workshop moves to using a pen to explore line drawings, learning to hone the skills we have developed over the course of the class and concluding with much more detailed drawings.
Each stage includes a short demonstration and guidance throughout, as required individually, as well as to the entire group but allows each participant enough time to explore the various mediums.

Elegant and ethereal but also precise and geometric, Laxmi Hussain’s drawings and watercolours exist somewhere between the abstract and the realistic, often presenting what appear to be the free-flowing organic forms of nature through intricately ordered patterns. Her finely detailed line forms are rooted in a fascination with architecture, a subject she studied for several years before becoming disillusioned with the constraints and rigidity of the discipline and shifting her focus to the unconstrained creative possibilities offered by art.
Laxmi has taught popular workshops in London and the UK allowing participants the space to explore art and drawing as a past time without any experience themselves. Enjoy learning about painting in ink and drawing in a calm environment with guidance for all levels.

Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. Went through a variety of techniques to loose up and taught how to appreciate line and form. Used a variety of materials and had ample space to paint/draw. Laxmi is so passionate about what she does and this really comes across.
