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’ 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. There is no fee for the clinics, booking essential: 021 4961002 / email@example.com.
“’……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.
