Weekend wellbeing: Drawing space
Sat 29 October 2016, 13:00 – 15:00 BST
Naomi Kendrick’s drawing practice explores drawing as a psychological space we inhabit. The process of creating each drawing is a journey undertaken, a space to discover and notice, captured in the drawing left behind.
Combining Naomi’s practice with mindfulness techniques these workshops will provide a relaxing and welcoming environment for you to explore drawing in relation to movement, sound and sight.
The first session will provide participants with the opportunity to draw in response to music, an exercise in the joy of listening as well as drawing; this is a fantastic route to finding yourself truly in the moment. Featuring live music by Richard Williams.
To draw is to notice. This will be our starting point as we discover multiple ways of looking at the subject of our drawing, from simply taking our time to using all of our senses. How will this renewed way of looking impact on our drawings?
Rae story is an artist and qigong (movement & meditation) teacher. This workshop will look at how physical movement in space can translate into 2D 'traces' (through the use of light recorded with long exposure photography). Participants will be lead through a series of relaxed movement and drawing exercises.
Participants must be able to attend all three sessions.
