Annabel - October 1st
Kethi was super friendly, welcoming and is extremely good at what she does as an artist and seeing her work prior to the start of the class was really inspiring. The venue on the Thames was ideal as there was never a lack of buildings to chose from, equally it meant that with each new drawing a new focal point could be picked and this prevented the 4 hours from feeling repetitive. In terms of the actual learning aspect there was not all that much teaching that went on, i have some experience in drawing and after each activity we would discuss where i could develop my drawings but there wasn't any teaching of new skills or exploring different ways to take on a drawing. As well as this i would probably say that 4 hours is slightly too long for the class and perhaps 3 hours would be better suited. That said, it was a super fun, light hearted afternoon of drawing and a very enjoyable way to spend a few hours in the sun on the Thames. I will definitely be taking another drawing class in the future!

Kethi Copeland tells us a story about the many layered experience of being in a city through the detailed line work of her architectural drawings and layers of screen-printed colour, offering a fresh perspective on what may be familiar surroundings. In her Walk By The River print series the twists and turns of the river Thames are rearranged to create one continuous line upon which the well known and under appreciated of London's riverside architecture co-exist.

Her beautifully hand-crafted and screen-printed designs are recognisable for their distinctive graphic style. Kethi uses humour and colour in…
