Abstract

Outreach project working with 2 schools to investigate landscape through drawing, mapping and design. The project focused on drawing as a pedagogical tool to map and design the landscape. Louise Clarke and Emma Davies were commissioned to collaborate on the project

Partnered with Delapre Abbey the workshops took place in both their walled gardens and NN Contemporary Art gallery's walled courtyard. Part of a programme to engage local schools in the gallery as well as working with schools to expand drawing as a learning tool.

Description

The invitation to do this project was a direct link between Louise Clarkes exhibition at the Fishmarket Gallery in 2006 and her numerous work over the years with Kew Gardens.
