Event description
This workshop will show students how to create exciting and dynamic, semi- abstracted spaces.

About this Event

The workshop will focus on how to depict objects and space in new, unusual and dynamic ways. We will be looking at how to relate to and represent our surroundings in a more abstracted way, encouraging different methods of creative response through the act of drawing and redrawing our environment.

The first day will begin with a comprehensive slide lecture which will illustrate the concepts of the workshop and will provide visual inspiration for the day. The morning and mid-morning sessions will consist of a series of 20 – 40 minute guided drawing experiments with demonstrations. The afternoon will consist of one larger, more sustained drawing using ideas formulated in the morning.

Over the course of the second day, a limited palette in dry materials will be introduced to help push students’ drawings forward through the use of limited colour. The afternoon will again push students to work dynamically on a larger scale with the skills they’ve learnt, and will finish with a group critique of the works.

Students will build on their observational perception and drawing skills, and will also learn new methods to help them expand their ways of approaching objects and space in a creative manner. Julie Mehretu, Judy Pfaff, Alberto Giacommetti, Richard Hamilton are some of the artists that we will be looking at over the course of the workshop.

All necessary materials will be provided and light lunches and refreshments will be available. Please notify us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.
