Our Ethos

Eye to Pencil is a studio for drawing with others. It is a space for making, observing and collaborating, and above all for discussing drawing as a skill and a tool for exchanging ideas. Our sessions guide a visually intuitive way of making - focusing as much on process as the end result.

Our approach to drawing is to give people confidence in their ability to communicate through drawing. We believe in learning through making and that this process constantly requires revision. It isn’t easy to 'explain' your drawings yet discussing and sharing observations and experiences is an important part of our studio activity. Looking at how generations of artists have dealt with the same challenges in the past is another form of learning integral to us.

The Studio is a quiet and focused place to work as well as a place for lively debate. Within our interdisciplinary studio, drawing together is important and we learn from each other to find common ground.

We are based at 26 Exmouth Market, Clerkenwell, in Central London.
