London Drawing Group
London Drawing Group is an all-female art and teaching collective founded in 2016 by Luisa-Maria MacCormack, Lucy Mcgeown and Frances Stanfield. They met whilst studying at the Royal Drawing School in 2014, and now run a program of diverse, unique classes all over London and online, collaborating with major institutions and attracting thousands of students as well as running regular exhibitions and maintaining their own studio practice.
Luisa, Lily and Frances taught a variety of online workshops directly from the rooms in VGH, as well as creating their own work and sharing it live on Instagram throughout their stay, and welcoming everyone to join them in exploring, drawing and learning about the house. All their classes are pay-what-you-can, they believe high quality art classes should be available to everyone whatever their level or financial situation.
During their teaching residency, London Drawing Group led three workshops: Drawing Van Gogh House: Hidden Treasures, Drawing Domesticity, and Painting Sunflower, as well as hosting a talk alongside Livia Wang: Van Gogh’s Women.
