In this playful, lively workshop with a dance model, students will create a series of dynamic drawings and paintings.
Following some short warm-up exercises, the model will do fast-moving and slower routines, as well as some still poses. We will use a variety of materials including acrylic paint and ink to create a set of flowing gestural drawings and paintings. Students will be encouraged to ‘let go’ of any tightness in their drawing process, allowing a fluidity of line and expressive way of working to capture gesture and movement. In the afternoon, we will work on a larger piece, combining layers of fast-drying acrylic paint with experimental marks to capture different poses and details in a lively painting.
