The first workshop was conducted on 11th May 2016 at Vadehra Art Gallery, D-53 Defence Colony. The workshop dealt with 'Mark Making' as a framework to think about the possibilities of drawing. The second workshop 'Drawing from Life' was conducted on 25th June 2016 and was a session in which the participants took a metro ride together and sketched the people, the journey and the surroundings they were in.The third session, 'Animating Thoughts' on 9th September at FICA Reading Room, invited participants to view exciting films and discuss and learn from the practices of artists like William Kentridge, David Shrigley, Paul Bill Barritt, Nalani Malani among others. The fourth workshop'Still 3D' conducted on 21 December 2016 at National Museum, Janpath explored the artifacts at Anubhav Gallery of the National Museum focusing specially on the experience of an artwork through the experience of touch. Participants were encouraged to draw from their observations in the absence of visual information.
Gagan Singh studied fine art in the UK and has exhibited in various group shows including the Sarai Reader 09 at the Devi Art Foundation, Delhi, 2012 – 2013. The content of the work falls into two broad categories, the autobiographical and the erotic. In both cases, humor acts as a point of access through which other issues, often more serious, are explored by the artist. He is the recipient of Indian Foundation for the Art's Extended Arts Practice Grant and had a solo exhibition in Chatterjee and Lal Gallery, Mumbai in 2014. The key ideas to his art practice are a fascination about drawing.
