- Thursday 20 May, 6-6.45pm
The Drawing Room examines the range of possibilities within contemporary drawing practice. This session will explore some favourite experimental drawing exercises and techniques, aimed at boosting drawing confidence, kicking off with a relaxing warm-up drawing meditation to help you focus.
Artist Catherine Street will lead a workshop looking at drawing in relation to the senses other than vision. We will do some simple listening exercises, considering how sounds might arise in our environment and how we could respond to them. We will also look at the sense of touch and of taste and explore ways that we could translate these sensations into drawn marks or gestures.
You will need:
• Pen or pencil
• Tape or blue tack
• Something nice and/or unusual to eat
• Any other materials that you may have
This session is for adults and is suitable for ages 12+
A Zoom link and brief will be sent to participants before the session.
