Workshop: Drawing Anatomical Architecture
Fay Penrose
Part of Guest Series Eye to Pencil Studio
Wed 05 Oct 10am-4pm
This workshop led by Fay Penrose will discuss definitions of architecture within anatomy and explore analogous relationships across wider disciplines. WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
This workshop will cover overarching themes of structural support, space and form, and consider the constraints of material properties, scaling and function. Using anatomical material (assorted animal bones, sheep hearts, anatomical source reference images) we will use drawing to consider form and function in the biological world. We will be focusing on how to represent complex three-dimensional shapes and spaces using a range of drawing techniques. Participants may also wish to take part in a short guided dissection of the sheep heart where we consider how shape, material properties, spaces and potential spaces allow the heart to function as an efficient pump. 

Please note this workshop will use animal material. Materials are included.
Guest Series Format: We will be joined by guests from different fields: art, ethnobotany, anatomy, and photography each of whom is committed to drawing. The format for the Guest Series will be for each guest to give a talk about how drawing relates to their own work and field, then at a later date they will lead a day long drawing workshop based on their practice.
