Wednesday Drop-in Gallery

Andrew Conrad

After some meagre art tuition at school I decided to be an architect
to blend both ‘art’ and ‘tech’ interests. The foundation course at
Brighton College of Art and Crafts convinced me that I made the best
choice. I learnt to sketch designs and render them in watercolour, as
well as technical drawing for construction. These skills were the
cornerstones of my career in three dimensional space and form.

After graduation I worked in several atelier before founding my own
practice specialising in acoustics. Latterly also as a visiting lecturer
teaching architectural undergraduates computer-aided-design (CAD).

After retiring from professional life I now pursue my interest in arts
and crafts by drawing and painting to develop two dimensional skills
and ideas new to me. I am finding art limitless and its pursuit endless.

My abiding interests are now discovering the many fresh aspects of
colour, texture and two dimensional forms.

The Bromley Arts Society drop-in studio is an environmental of
similar minded people practising their own ideas and art techniques
in an informal atmosphere of shared and mutual endeavour.
