What the pencil does
A drawing buffet without food with artist Ko de Kok

On 7 and 8 October you can go to TENT and Witte de With, Center for Contemporary Art, for an exciting, performative drawing adventure with Ko de Kok during the Rotterdam drawing festival. He is a draftsman, tattoo artist, poet and performer, who playfully tackles the self-evidence of our perception. In his detailed drawings, technical perfection is a means to entice viewers to take a closer look at the work. By combining everyday recognizable and alienating absurd images, he creates his own, imaginative reality. In this workshop, Ko teaches you the tricks of the realistic drawing profession. In addition, there is sufficient room for free expression.

What: walk-in workshop
13.00 - 17.00 hours
Cost: free
