“Drawing is about seeing and perception. For me, drawing is a deeply personal experience, expressed through mark making. Drawing is like going on holiday – nothing else exists. It is a wonderful way to respond to: places, people, dreams, experience and imagination…….a way to develop ideas, expand on them and diarize events. “
This workshop will be a safe place to play and discover your own vocabulary, share responses and delve into your own mark making methods. In the morning we will experiment with different implements for drawing, as well as the use of surfaces and materials. We will explore ‘seeing and perception’ to develop a personal visual language
In the afternoon we will expand on these developments, focusing deeply and responding visually to feelings and experiences.
The results of this work and teaching will become a foundation for your own continuing development.
