Mon 03 Jun 6.00-8.30pm
Mon 10 Jun 6.00-8.30pm
Mon 17 Jun 6.00-8.30pm
In this course we will focus on learning and analysing music through drawing and singing. COURSE DESCRIPTION
Music and art share a common descriptive language - but how helpful are shared terms when seeking to understand the other art form?  For example, what does shape mean in each instance?

Over 3 evening sessions we will weave between our aural and visual senses as we learn one piece of music, analysing it through musical and drawing exercises. We will look for commonality and equivalence - listening and finding visual form for elements within the music, and consider musical ideas in relation to drawings.

The sessions will talk about structure, harmony and rhythm over the evening, exploring more specific related ideas. Through playful musical construction and deconstruction we will use our ears and eyes to understand music in greater depth. We will also see how our own artistic decisions can impact the narrative of a piece.

The sessions will include drawing and singing (humming is OK too), and they are designed for everyone to join in. You do not need to be a musician or artist - just have a keen interest in music (in any of it's forms) and drawing. We expect that the course will be of interest to: musicians, composers, drawers, artists, designers, music lovers. If you do play and instrument and would like to bring it along then feel free to.

The course is co-designed by and will be led by musician Lorena Canto Wolteche and artist Luci Eyers. 
Materials are included.

Luci works predominantly in watercolour with images sourced from her imagination however looking at drawing in its widest sense has always been an important part of her practice.
