Concrete Jungle - Drawing in the Barbican Conservatory

This drawing workshop is all about contrasts - the Brutalist architecture of the Barbican Conservatory presents great contrasts of textures and form. Take as long as you like - 15 minutes or 2 hours, we want you to enjoy using your hands, and making a drawing from scratch.  Below are some thoughts about drawing this space, together with some hints for getting the best out your materials. Just hover over a box for more info.
