This workshop will explore a meditative approach to drawing and abstract mark-making.

A series of drawing exercises using a range of dry and wet materials, will be interspersed with short periods of meditation focusing on awareness of the body, the natural rhythm of the breath and the sounds around us. While being more fully aware of the present moment, students will create a series of drawings based on the physical action of mark-making and the behaviour of various drawing materials. We will explore the ‘complexity of the simple’ alongside the pleasure of drawing for its own sake without the need to achieve a preconceived end-result.
