      Madge Gill Drawing Class

      The Madge Gill Drawing Project will run drawing classes inspired by the works of Madge Gill (1882-1961), a self-taught artist who started making her work in her late 30’s and became one of the foremost British Outsider artists. The class will introduce the unique and locally significant story of Madge Gill through a series of innovative drawing exercises aimed at giving confidence and skills to participants. Each class will work with an original drawing by Madge Gill, presented to the class by the Newham archive, the largest collection of Madge Gill works in existence. Experienced artists Karen Le Roy Harris and Veronica Rowlands will explain technical skills, introduce different materials to use in drawing and help participants to develop their own drawing style.  These classes are aimed at adults, children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. All materials will be provided and previous drawing experience is not needed. The drawing classes coincide with an exhibition of Madge Gill’s artwork at the William Morris Gallery 22nd June - 22nd September 2019. The Works by Madge Gill exhibition aims to reconnect her story and work with the place of her birth in Waltham Forest. William Morris famously quoted; ‘I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few.’ This has strong resonance with Gill and her inspirational compulsions to make work, teaching herself, in ill health, at home and with limited supplies.
