Here at Seawhite Studio we are lucky to have such a large and versatile art studio that enables us to offer students the freedom to explore and play with new and innovative art practices.
We are also fortunate to work with exciting and diverse artists and are very excited about our latest collaboration with artists Betsy Dadd and Lydia CS. Both artists as a duo share their practice through Kaleidoworks, working with students, groups and communities through commissions with Camden Arts Centre, Serpentine, South London Gallery, V&A Museum, Counterpoints Arts as well as independently devising projects in Palestine, Pembrokeshire and Ahmedabad, India.
Their series of Moving Image courses and Drawing and Sound course, run at Seawhite Studio, bring a dynamic new energy and perspective to the process of working with light and movement in creating art.
Moving Image III at Seawhite Studio
To give a flavour of the innovative and experimental processes that Betsy and Lydia develop to inspire students with their work, this week's newsletter introduces the artists and the courses, through images, video and students experiences.
We are proud of our wonderful studio, but also enjoy the flexibility of being able to take our art courses and workshops out to others. Emily Ball goes on tour regularly to run courses nationally and internationally and this week we have news of her latest 'on tour' course run as a residential from Cober Hill Hotel in West Yorkshire - with 4 places left to book!
From Moving Image 2
Seawhite Studio is delighted that international artists Betsy Dadd and Lydia CS, have developed workshops for our exciting programme of short courses, contributing their unique creative practices and experiences of working on diverse moving image and sound projects, film festivals and documentaries.
We asked them to tell us about their work, their journey of exploration and their latest projects. We have also provided a link to a film made by the two artists in 2016.
Watch the film here!
"I use drawing and printing techniques to produce moving-image work and devise ways to present these as projection installations. Since graduating from Royal College of Art in 2013, I have exhibited with Marsden Woo and Flowers Gallery and screened works at various international film festivals. Having collaborated with directors, choreographers and set designers I have projected moving-image work on stage at Sadler's Wells and National Theatre and DanceEast".
"I have just returned from an artist residency with La Wayaka Current in Guna Yala, a remote and autonomous region of Panama. I am now developing a series of cine-poems from my collected archive of film and sound recordings that explore the tropical ecosystems and cultural connections to the land".
Work in progrerss Cine-poem still 2
"I explore narrative and poetry through moving-image. My approach spans documentary film-making and experimental analogue techniques. I have been cinematographer for various dance pieces as well as working alongside Assemble to shoot and edit Voice of Children, a film about child-led play installed at the Venice Architecture Biennial, Baltic 2016, and Arnolfini 2017. Playing Field was a film project which grew out of a residency at Reading Room, Pembrokeshire which fused community participation with art activism, working with the local families to explore the importance of play and public space. I am currently being commisioned by Camden Arts Centre to be an artist in Residence at a school. A collection of participatory film and sound pieces are being developed up until summer 2019."

Emily Ball goes on Tour to Yorkshire.Monday 19th to Friday 22nd August 2019,
A residential art course at Cober Hill Hotel, Cloughton, Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
This is a fantastic opportunity to take part in a four day workshop with Emily Ball in Yorkshire!
Students will be encouraged to use the inspiration of the surrounding landscape at Cober Hill, to make strong studies packed full of exciting information before returning to the studio space to use these studies to develop paintings.
“I encourage students to take risks and experiment with their approach to creating images and their use of materials. I do not teach traditional techniques. I help students to push their work forward and find ways of refreshing, strengthening and expanding their methods of selecting and assembly of information to create work that is individual and exciting.” Emily Ball
Cober Hill Hotel
The total cost of this course is £495, not including art materials. The course includes four nights, 3 course dinner, bed and full English breakfast, plus tea/coffee throughout the day and a snack lunch at the purpose built Joseph Rowntree Centre, part of Cober Hill Hotel http://www.coberhill.co.uk
