Rodin said, ‘It is very simple. My drawings are the key to my work.’ Though renowned for works that revolutionised the art of sculpture, Rodin was also a prolific and experimental draughtsman who produced more than 10,000 drawings. He used his many visits to the British Museum to work on preparatory sketches and studies, inspired by the objects from Greece, Egypt, China and Assyria.

Drawing enabled Rodin to experiment more freely and spontaneously with line and form before realising his ideas in stone and bronze, but he also saw it as central to the evolution and expression of his vision – as an art in its own right.

In this series of stimulating and experimental workshops over five Sundays, led by sculptor Marcus Cornish, see the Museum’s collection through Rodin’s eyes, and explore the artist’s ideas and techniques. Open to all abilities, materials included.

Presented in collaboration with the Royal Drawing School.
