It is suitable for both seasoned artists and beginners.
Essence and feeling flow
Our dynamic and expressive model, Jaqi, who is a dancer, will inspire expressive gestural responses from us.
Starting with blind contour drawing which is one of the keys to really seeing. These drawings are all about the experience, not so much about the result, although we often love the pure quality in the line, the honesty and sensitivity (sometimes hilarity).
Later we will explore the gesture exercise using a variety of mediums: drawing and painting with energy and freedom, from a place of feeling.
Drawing and painting in your unique style, with a playfulness that offers freedom from expectation the session will culminate with a surprisingly honest and raw artwork.
You won’t just be learning ‘how to’ but will be tapping into your unique creativity to respond personally and with meaning to our models. Using music and dynamic drawing exercises it is possible to make an instant connection, bypassing your analytical brain and moving into creative flow.
These moments of flow or being in the zone is where the magic happens and drawings emerge without effort. Being in these states enhances a sense of wellbeing and joy that filters into your daily life.
