Sensory Drawing Self Portrait Workshop

This self-portrait class explores drawing through touch and sensation as well as the visual senses. We will work using mirrors, trying a range of different drawing techniques, as well as collage. The course will encompass using the tactile elements of collage to feed back into the drawing process. In this two day course we will tune into our senses to explore a range of drawing techniques based on touch and feeling.

Summer Atelier Conservatoire
Thursdays & Fridays, 22, 23, 29 & 30 July, 10am - 3.30pm (4 sessions, £150)
Like the term time Atelier Conservatoire, this course is based on the traditional European system of artists coming together as a group to work in a serious studio environment on personal projects, with the support and guidance of a tutor. Participants need to be self-motivated and have an idea of what they would like to do. Many make painting projects based around photographs as source material as well as their own research and drawings. Others work from observation - the still life or interior - as well as imaginatively on abstract compositions. The course runs in the spacious Studio 1 for two consecutive days over two weeks. It is an opportunity to continue developing projects already begun in the Atelier Conservatoire, or to begin something new and see it as an intense self-contained period of work. Some experience of painting and drawing is essential.
