Event description

Description

Join us for a unique collaboration between artist Jenny Smith and concious dance teacher Sarena Wolfaard that wil explore the relationship between embodied drawing and dance and take place as part of this years Art Walk Porty.

Art Walk Porty's theme this year is Land marks. Meeting at Bellfield Community Centre, we will start with a walk on Portobello beach, to collect natural landmarks. We will explore ways to use these as a starting point to create individual and collective drawings, in dance, charcoal and chalks. We will explore ways the inner and outer landscape of the body meets the landscape of the natural world and how marks “land” when we draw in an embodied way.

Open to all. No previous drawing or dance experience required. Conscious dance has no steps. Through the dance we connect to an inner space of mystery and creativity. We will explore a process-based approach to drawing that is equally accessible to those with or without previous drawing experience. This is Jenny and Sarena's third collaboration and has been specially devised for Art Walk Porty.

Jenny Smith is a professional artist, with over 30 years experience of teaching and exhibiting in a wide variety of contexts. www.jennysmith.org.uk & www.drawnto.org.uk

Sarena Wolfaardhas been facilitating conscious dance for 15 years. She is a Publisher and an advanced student of Process Work. www.movetobestill.com

“It's inspiring, exciting and fun, a great way to get the creative juices flowing. Totally non-judgemental about anyone's individual "artistic talent" and fully focused on accessing, sharing and playing with the creativity in all of us. The teachers are experienced and professional and hold the group expertly.” Beth

“It has a much broader impact than just your dancing or drawing - in many ways it's one big metaphor for the creative process, or even for life itself.” Nick
