Drop in & Draw: Drawing Daily

Starts - Saturday 2 October 2021

Nora Zeid is an illustrator, designer, and visual artist based in Dubai. Her practice is simultaneously complex and accessible and seeks to spark discourse, without excluding or alienating general audiences. Driven by the desire to re-establish her relationship with her hometown of Cairo, Nora’s body of work currently revolves around visual representations of the city and how it affects people’s relationship with spaces.

After working as a graphic designer at Abjad Design for three years, Nora shifted her focus to her visual arts practice as well as freelance illustration. She has done work for clients such as VICE, NoGood, Matter, Dubai Culture, and Dubai Design District. She holds a B.S in Visual Communication from the American University of Sharjah.

Nora has participated in exhibitions including Cairo Prints Exhibition - Edition II (Cairo, 2021) and SIKKA Art Fair (Dubai, 2019). Her comic titled East of Home has been published in Sharjah Art Foundation’s anthology Corniche 2020.

Nora is a participant of the Tashkeel Critical Practice Program 2020.

Drop in and Draw is an on-going monthly session that promotes drawing as a thinking process. Participants are encouraged to share their sketchbook pages with each other and explore various drawing approaches and techniques to build-up confidence and fill up sketchbook pages.

In this session, Nora Zeid will explain her approach to practicing drawing daily, balancing between learning new things while working professionally. She will share her personal experience and techniques on how to manage that difficulty, and participants will then put their hand to the test through exercises that can be easily recreated at home.
