On and Beyond Drawing (April 13th)


With Jenni Mac

This is a one day course on:
Saturday, April 13th,
10.00 – 16.00

Simply put, this new and exciting course will be a mixture of figure drawing, still life drawing, note taking from movement (with scenes and moving objects) and most of all, experimental making!

Taking influence from theories of thinking with your hands over your head, this course will see you experimenting with “automatic drawing” to encourage your own personal style and flair come out in the drawings you make. 

We will work to create images that combine what we see with what we imagine, to build confidence and dismantle worry in the unique marks we make!

With a surrealistic sensibility and measured tutoring in equilibrium, Jenni will take inspiration from life drawing techniques to create still life sets and compositions  that can be turned into observational drawings, or interpreted images.

We will look at artists such as Paula Rego, Di Chirico, Ben Nicholson, Jake Spicer, Jeanne Mammen, Joan Brown, George Grosz and so on, and take note of aesthetic decisions, social storytelling in image, and bring them into our own works.
