This project promoted the gathering, in a collective studio, of 16 Brazilian and foreign artists coming from countries such as Argentina, Nicaragua, Egypt, Holland, France and The Comoro Islands.

In addition to the Collective Studio, the project offered three workshops, allowing the participation of over 60 artists from the city of Belo Horizonte and others.

No one can deny the importance of drawing as a structural basis for any image. CEIA’s goal with DRAWING was to focus on this media as a field of artistic investigation in order to allow the expansion of an individual’s perception within the sensitive field, stimulating interesting studies on visual expression.
