Connecting Through Drawing
£150 per person all materials included.
The act of drawing is one of our most ancient and universal forms of communication and expression. During this course we will celebrate how each of us is inherently creative and has a unique style and approach to making art. Using natural form as inspiration we will create a space for curiosity and wonder together.
Drawing often requires a particular kind of attention as we work with our subject. It could be said that drawing increases our sensitivity to the world around us. Noticing our initial approach to drawing can reveal at times our wider approach to life. How do we make our mark? and what happens when we try to change our normal patterns.
This reflective eight-week course will bring our attention to the intricate patterns and rhythms of the natural world and strengthen our own sense of connection and belonging. Participants will be able to experiment with a variety of drawing materials. No previous artistic experience is necessary.
‘In almost no time I was seduced into the magic of the paper and Chinese brushes and the possibility of ‘not trying to draw’ but allowing the charcoal to take the lead. The process was extraordinary. Helen’s teaching style is so refined – like an osteopath working with words and ink and feeling instead of muscles and bones.’
– Andrew Carey, Triarchy Press
