Drawing has had a resurgence in artists’ practices and the topic of drawing research has simultaneously gained recognition and significance. Drawing research defies definition and can be applied to a range of subjects, using various methodologies and engaging participants from a breadth of disciplines. This Symposium marks the start of our project to create the Bloomsbury Handbook of Drawing Research.
What is drawing research? This was a question that was highlighted by Garner (2008) when he asked ‘do we claim a distinct knowledge base? Is it an issue of approach or method or do we think about drawing differently?’ How do we answer the question what is drawing research in 2023?
