This is an intermediate level workshop and is suitable for those students who have completed my ‘Introduction to Drawing’ workshop or for those with some drawing experience.
Artists throughout the years have used their own domestic space as subject matter and as a way to reveal more about themselves. This workshop is designed to build upon your drawing skills by introducing you to new ways to look at and draw space. The aim is to create an alternative ‘self portrait’ by carefully setting up your space before the workshop, thinking about how you want it to reflect your personality and then using it as the subject matter for the workshop.
At the start of the session we will spend time looking and discussing more artist space artwork. I will give you suggestions about how to approach your own drawing and you will then spend the rest of the time drawing your space. As always at the end of the workshop we will look together at everyone’s work and offer supportive and encouraging feedback. Before the class, I will send you out a selection of images for inspiration – ones that show how artists throughout the years have portrayed their own rooms and spaces.
