Workshop: Drawing and the Found Object
Alastair Levy
Part of Guest Series Eye to Pencil Studio
Tue 22 Nov 10am-4pm
This workshop is led by multidisciplinary artist Alastair Levy, using found objects as source material. WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
The day-long workshop will combine quick, playful drawing exercises in the morning session with an extended collaborative project in the afternoon. We will use everyday, domestic objects and materials as inspiration, including items that you bring with you into the studio from home or from the street. Alastair will guide us to work with both abstract and figurative mark-making using a diverse range of drawing media and surface types. We will also incorporate graphic elements and logo forms as a kind of 2D found object. These different approaches to drawing will be combined in a larger final work that we make together as a group in the afternoon. 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.

Tuesday, 22 November
