The Drawing Clinic aims to create a space in which drawing matters can be experienced, discussed, and looked at in consultation with the Eustace twins.
‘Clients’ use a booking system to arrange an appointment (30 min max) and a time slot is agreed. A clinic takes place over the course of a morning or afternoon facilitating 4 appointments per clinic (8 in total).
‘Clients’ can bring along a drawing they are working on, explore a particular method of drawing or tackle a design or a problem through drawing. The clinics offer ongoing professional development for artists in a relaxed twinshpere with the identical twins thinking and working in tandem.
“’……The space that’s the Eustace twins hold is extraordinary, almost impossible to describe and exhilarating to experience, part performance, part immersive deconstructive and reconstructive, with many gem-like tools of discovery, sparkling on the horizon of one’s drawing practice. They facilitate a liberating and empowering experience that is both profound and hilarious in turn. A gold class act, I can’t wait for the next one.” Tina Whelan, Drawing Clinic 2019.
