Magical Spaces - An Experimental Drawing Course

Magical Spaces - An Experimental Drawing Course

Course dates: March 7th - 8th 2022 (Monday - Tuesday)

Drawing is a magical and transformative process, demonstrating just how we as humans/artists perceive/see/experience 3 dimensional space , and translate it onto a 2 dimensional surface, making our mark on the (cave) wall.

This course will have you deconstructing the process of drawing; creating your own ‘still life’ installation in the studio space using everyday studio objects, cardboard, black and white paint, paper, ink, string and drawing materials. Think Picasso’s cardboard cut outs meet Cornelia Parker’s exploding shed!

As you start to work on and with the 3 dime nsional space, you will begin extending lines and marks onto large drawings on the studio walls and floor. Moving around the space, shifting objects, , obscuring and revealing, changing viewpoints, catching glimpses, peeking through all of this will ap- pe ar in your drawing, changing, moving, shifting, layering, ripping, extending, collaging.

You will spend 2 days immersed in this interactive experience, working on your own mini installation, or with the group on larger set ups, whilst simultaneously cons tructing large experimental drawings. The drawings will be continually changing. You may work on one or several. They will change your experience of drawing space, and lead to creative possibilities in your work elsewhere, whether drawing or painting. Expect to come away with a new sense of perspective!
