Alexander Rodchenko wrote: Only the line can tell us what happened. This will be researched and discussed by doing during this master class and will be the topic of the public programme: what is drawing, what happens during the act of drawing and what does it mean? Is drawing what a child once said: A drawing is a line ‘around a think’?  

The Drive of Drawing is the first in a series of 10 master classes organized by the Hubert van Eyck Academie, supported by the Mondriaan fund. This master class immerses 12 participating artists in the world of drawing, so that they can return to their individual studios armed with new insights and experiences.
Master classes to come are The Drive of Performing and The Drive of Painting.
