After the success of our sold-out Drawing Dance sessions in Autumn and Spring 2020, it returns to Forest this Summer! This time with a free glass of wine or soft drink.
An interdisciplinary collaboration of art, exploring movement within visual arts. With contemporary dance artist Christina Binney and art tutor Lisa Christopher, the workshops consist of half facilitated movement and half improvised dance, where the visual artists are invited into the dance studio to draw movement as well as static poses. A fun and explorative drawing session for those interested in art, dance and the human form.
What you need: Wear clothes you don't mind making a mess in and your own drawing equipment. We also require participants over the age of 11 to wear face coverings in the centre.
We cannot provide equipment at this time. You will need:
- Sketching pencil (any, HB is fine)
- Rubber and sharpener
Paper will be included for each session, but artists are advised to bring rolls of paper for quick drawing during the movement section of the workshop.
