Movement drawing session with professional dancer, Vanessa, who will perform live for us, and pose for us to draw.

About this Event

We would love to invite you to Art in the Park's ONLINE Movement Life Drawing session!

Posing live for us we will have professional dancer, Vanessa Abreu, who will be clothed.

In between the performance, Vanessa will stop for 5 minute poses for us to draw. We will also experiment with drawing her going between two poses for 5 minutes, and will finish with a longer pose.

Materials needed: Any paper you have around the house of any size and any drawing materials - pencils, coloured pencils, felt tips, oil or chalk pastels, or charcoal.

The session will be mainly short poses of 5 minutes. There will be two experienced Art in the Park artists present who can offer advice if needed and will show artist inspiration but of course feel free to draw however you want. We will also have breakout rooms with one of our artists available to anyone who wishes to have further instruction.

At the end of the session, we would love it if you could stay and hold up your drawings so that we can see your work. Also we would love it if you emailed your finished artwork to or tagged us in them at @artinburgesspark on instagram or @artintheparktwt on twitter.
