How do we learn to be creative? Or to solve problems in a creative way? Often this is attributed to inspiration, a force we assume we have no control over. But it turns out there is a lot we can do to put ourselves into the right frame of mind! During this workshop, your group will learn exercises designed to tap into the creative flow.
1) Drawing with Body Movement
During this workshop we will learn about the concept of a gesture and what it means to make a mark. Starting with a warm up exercise to loosen up, we will then work in partners to create large scale gestural paintings. We will also learn about artists who have employed this technique and discuss their strategies, from action painter Jackson Pollock to experimental choreographer Trisha Brown.
2) Life Drawing
Draw from a live model, nude or clothed. During this energetic workshop we draw from a variety of poses, progressing through a series of exercises from blind contour drawing to gestural drawing and more. We will look for shapes in negative space and find out what constitutes the essence of a pose. Our models are professional dancers and performers, bringing their own dynamic to the poses.
This workshop is very successful with complete beginners, as well as those with more experience.
