Angie Brew

Alt MFA Presenter

Angie Brew is an artist, researcher and drawing teacher. She holds a Drawing MA with distinction from Camberwell College of Art, UAL, London. For her doctorate she worked in the Drawing & Cognition Project, Camberwell, researching enactive observational drawing methods and pedagogy. This resulted in a new cognitively-informed approach called 'Drawing Growth', synchronising eye and hand. Her art practice explores drawing for well-being and healing, and close observational drawing of growth processes. She is a Director of Thinking through Drawing, running drawing symposia and professionally development courses. She is artist in residence in a community greenhouse in Brixton, London, where she leads a collaborative Drawing Growth project and a weekly drawing club. She runs an interdisciplinary research project called Drawlearn, exploring how drawing enables and enhances learning 'across the board'. During Covid lockdown she ran online sessions called Tree Meds - calming drawing meditations, and, with artists Angela Hodgson-Teall and Jen Wright, launched MinDraw, a one minute a day drawing project.
