Based on The Embodied Experience in Drawing Workshop they gave in Summer 2018 in Plymouth UK, PCA’s Department Chairs Véronique Devoldère and Chloé Briggs will lead l’Air Arts residents in a sensory exploration of drawing.
The workshop will have three stages: 1) participants draw from a reclining position and with their eyes closed; 2) participants work moving from kneeling to crouching as they slowly open their eyes; 3) participants complete their drawings from a standing position, with eyes open. Throughout, a variety of musical scores will be played.
The questions that we hope to raise are:
How much of your body do you use when drawing?
What is your particular mind-body dynamic when making a drawing image?
What qualities in drawing differ between a ‘blind,’ ‘felt’ mark and a consciously directed line?
How does sound affect the senses particularly when drawing?
This workshop is only open to residents of the l’Air Arts residency.
