Workshop: Rubbings As Animation Frames
Violet Cheverez with Eye to Pencil
Part of Evening Workshops Eye to Pencil Studio
Tue 03 Oct 6.30-8.30pm
Join artist Violet Cheverez in a workshop that explores the potential of different techniques of creating rubbings to create an animation. WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
Violet invites us to understand and reciprocate her process of adopting drawing to create animation. Participants are asked to bring one or more flat objects to create rubbings on rice paper, alongside a snacks, an important part of her practice. Violet will demonstrate different styles and techniques of creating rubbings such as background texture, superimposing, colour changing, and the use of different weights and density. All of these techniques can transform one image into multiples to build frames. At the end of the workshop we will scan everyones’ drawings so that Violet can edit them into an animation. These animated compositions will later be shared with each participant.

Materials are included.

Evening workshop format: Our series of Evening workshops will focus on extending drawing through low-tech, low cost, DIY techniques. The creatives leading each workshop are young and emerging, yet each is working in a strong and accomplished way with their approach and materials. Curated by Issey Kang.

Anyone who is interested in drawing or who draws but would like to try out new materials and techniques centred on drawing.


Violet Cheverez is an artist based in New York City, her areas of focus are animation and video art. She works in many different media - from drawing, collage, and photography, to screenprinting and airbrushing. She combines these forms in compositions of animated sequences. The materials that are initially used for frames of her animations become remnants, and are reworked into physically collaged documents and books.
