This is a 6-week series that teaches you to unleash your own unique style and creative flow. You can come to the whole series or single sessions.
It is suitable for both seasoned artists and beginners.
At Create or Die, we believe that creativity is an innately human trait, and that we all have an artist inside of us that has either been fed or starved. Come feed your creative soul with our wonderful teacher Gabbi Lancaster.
Flow with Indian ink
Our model Jaqi (ex-ballerina) is perfect for this night!
We will be warming up with energetic and dramatic poses to throw us into the zone…
Then using Indian ink to exaggerate and distort the figure, we explore the concept of negative space.
“Gesture can open you to peak experiences…
By giving you a situation
with which the mind cannot cope…
new doors can open
where other perceptions blossom in you
and as you relax
and let go
the surprises of creativity
arrive and overtake you” Shanti
- All art materials (& you can bring any of your own favourites if you like)
- Light refreshments served during the break
“Whilst studying Art & Anatomy at Art School in the 80’s, I realised we were learning much more than drawing and painting. It was an awakening and deepening of perception and sensitivity; a way of being.
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 well being and joy that filters into your daily life.
