Event description

Description

Draw Paint Film is painting and drawing set to film screenings. No need for mastery here, we welcome everyone of all ages and stages. The workshop runs for 2 hours, we use film stills to demonstrate painting and drawing techniques. There is less of an emphasis on tuition at these events and more focus on creating a relaxed and social event where people can learn at their own pace.

To kick things off at Draw Paint Film we are launching with an absolute belter of a director - Ben Wheatley. A class act in contemporary film making with a knack for unapolagetically raw, quality technical arrangements in his work.
If you love caranage and a little societal breakdown at the cinema then you will love what we are bringing to the table! We will be referencing film stills from Wheatley's dystopian hit "High Rise", looking at how the technical devices in his work can be applied to drawing and painting.
We have collected a fair few props we think go hand in hand with "High Rise" which we will use to compare to the film stills, as well as draw and paint from!

We also bring to the stage Miss Laura Edith Roxby - @silkyroxby. Laura is a Glasgow based painter who is known for her iconic and animated style of imagery in her work. She will be kicking the night off discussing her painting style and it's relationship to film and photography.

A large part of the aesthetic for the night is the silent screening of the film within the space. However, due to some technical glitches this may not be possible on our first night. But do no fret or be disheartened! Instead we bring you some fab acoustic instrumentals from one of Glasgow's most talented acts - Mr Nico Gaul!

Materials are included in the price, however we encourage people to bring their own materials. We all have different personal tastes in terms of quality and method when it comes to painting. There is no one size fits all! It's important you work with a brand and material you are comfortable with. If you need any guidance on purchasing materials, and what is best for you please feel free to send us a message through our facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/stillsandpaint/?modal=admin_todo_tour

Learning to draw from film stills is an amazing skill to develop. Increasingly, more and more artists work from photographs. Film stills give you access to quality formatted photography where every aspect of the image has been considered. It is a fascinating method of learning the technical devices of painting and drawing.
