Drawing Correspondence Six Week Program - The Body I am In
(19th October - 23rd November 2021)
Live session / Every Tuesday / 5 – 7pm (UK time)
This is our second themed six-week program that consists of : shared drawing sessions, prompted independent drawing projects, feedback, surgeries and recommendations. These programs are designed to support the growth and critical evolution of your drawing practice in a supportive atmosphere.
As soon as we can draw, we try to draw the figure. Drawing the body, either ourselves or others is an endless exploration of what it means to be alive. Drawing from ourselves, people we know, or from ‘life models’, wrapped or unwrapped by the layers we cover ourselves with, is in measuring how we occupy space in the world.
Our program will reflect on the changing body, body acceptance, gratitude and reverence, encouraging the grounding benefits of a drawing practice. Closer observation of the body through drawing encourages how we are part of nature, our authenticity, and celebrates vibrant physicality in all its complexity, as well as being a much-celebrated drawing discipline. Our program has a non-judgemental approach to drawing and takes the opportunity of drawing together as a chance to build respect for yourself and others. We will draw together and explore a range of dynamic approaches to drawing the body.
Participants will be led through the program by all three Drawing Correspondence founding mentors, Chloe, Tania and Anita, supported by other individuals invited to be part of the program delivery.
We will connect participants to wider drawing networks and debates around drawing from the figure.
The Drawing Correspondence Six Week Program concludes with an online presentation of the work.
Program Outline Available on request.
