Draw Through the Room, Using Your Whole Body
Part of Big Draw Workshops 2023
Northlight Art Studios
Movement, awareness of the body, drawing, mark making and sculpture!
We will start with some breathing & relaxation exercises, tuning into your body, progressing to picking up graphite sticks and starting to use them on the papered floor and walls.
Mark making through simple yoga / stretch poses, begin to draw your way across the room on the paper, navigating the space in different ways, exploring how you can use your body to make a mark and use different mark making tools.
Incorporate colour with oil & chalk pastels, draw in response to various sounds , manipulating shadows, objects etc explore different ways to connect to each other through mark making, draw round each other, layering drawings on top of each other.
The final hour is spent lifting up the whole floor of paper as one piece, and getting underneath it as it transforms into an architectural, tent-like space we can also rip up the paper and use it sculpturally
Take a piece of the paper home with you.
