6th & 7th of April, 10 am to 4 pm
Gorman Arts Centre, C Block Theatre
55 Ainslie Avenue, Braddon, ACT.
Day One
The workshop will begin with mark-making exercises to heighten the sensitivity and dexterity of the hand, wrist and arm to create confident and gestural line drawings of the human form. The class will then learn to see the proportions of the human body through carefully researched strategies that assist in the depiction of the body in space. This gentle and carefully researched approach to life drawing addresses the complexities of anatomy and perspective, helping participants to perceive relationships in space with greater clarity and allow them to translate what is seen from three dimensions into two.
Day Two
Following an exploration of mark making techniques linked to the careful observation of light, shadow and contrast, participants will further develop line drawings from day one into highly refined finished works. A specific focus will be placed on the relationship between the body and space, the play of light and expression on the model’s face, and the use of heavily built up areas to create an illusion of depth on the two dimensional surface of paper. The class will be followed by a celebration in the courtyard and a visit to Genevieve's studio following the completion of the workshop.
