Modern Nature X Planet Art

Art History and Art Workshop

Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artists. From Durer's robust etchings of rhinos with livid scales to Ai Wei Wei's millions of ceramic sunflower seeds laid out across Tate's Turbine Hall, the natural world has been vital in shaping the world's art and architecture. 

But what is 'Modern Nature' and why are we perpetually fascinated by plants and animals? And does our current treatment of the planet match this ideal?

Join us at Drawing Room London on Saturday 8th June to look at the how artists throughout history have approached the motifs, messages and materials of nature and then form your own artistic response! 

Experiment with materials to create a 2-D or 3- D mixed-media artwork inspired by the Drawing Room's show. Get introduced to different ways of working, from representational to more abstract and then, taking Victor Timofeev’s theme of Future Fictions and imagined landscapes, make your own art work that is a response to our environmental crisis.
