Eye to Hand

Eye to Hand

During this time of solitude and confinement, contemporary artist Genevieve Swifte invites you to a virtual corner of her home where she has created space from which to draw objects close to hand: glass bottles, fragments of broken china, heirlooms, pieces of fruit, treasures from the garden, etc, etc.
Find stillness and purpose in the everyday objects around you, this workshop will take a specific focus on the depiction of light and shadow, creating sublime moments from our indefinite domestic confinement.

What to Expect
Genevieve's Workshops tend to be a wonderful mix of beginners, talented teens and experienced artists. Each of her classes are carefully researched and are designed to:
• Help you see the world around you with greater clarity
• Translate what you see from three dimensions into two
• Heighten the sensitivity and dexterity of your hand, wrist and arm
Moving between technical instruction, poetic interpretation and forms of abstraction, participants will have access to: 
• Guided observation and mark making exercises 
• Lessons in foreshortening and the depiction of forms in space 
• Expert feedback and support
