Workshop: Moving inside my head through the paper in my hands - memory, drawing and collage
with Joana Galego
Part of Guest Series
Eye to Pencil Studio
This workshop led by Joana Galego is centred on her belief that one can live through drawing, experiencing fear and resolution, encounter mystery, rejoice in failure, translate what’s nameless and even travel in time.
The workshop will focus on a three-staged working process: sketching, researching and materialising. Participants will be encouraged to ask themselves what they want to say or what memories and emotions they want to express with their work.
Starting in the morning with thumbnail sketches sparked by words and imagination. We’ll then draw from observation, gathering elements which will fill and inform a final piece to be worked on through the afternoon, exploring the potential of editing drawings through collage as a means of navigating imagined space. Materials are included.
Tuesday, 31 January10am-4pm (1 hour lunch break)

Guest Series Format: We will be joined by guests from different fields: art, anatomy, fashion, and graphic novels. 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.
