This type of workshop isn’t an end itself but it is generally an opening up process and does allow the person engaged to consider option/directions and media connections that might not have been apparent before. Drawing is the engine that drives the workshop but many of the works turn into paintings, collages or even 3 D constructions.
Moreover, this is an intense, absorbing, experience which initially demands a total physical and mental commitment. The first part creates the condition of work, the pace, and channeling, automatic response, given momentum by the shared experience of the ‘group dynamic’. Each student will work on a large piece of paper which will build and change as the workshop progress.
In the first day we will go through a fluid series of approaches, interactions and interpretations. The pace by a wide variety of music which helps drive the pace and nature of the workshop.
Although there still instruction in the second day the pace is mainly set by the need to bring the work to some kind of resolution before setting up the exhibition in the afternoon. A volunteer hanging committee will be sorted from the group and the whole group will help the committee hang the show.
Although the groups are mainly fine art students, many graphic design, architect, time based media and photography students have found the experience highly worthwhile. The workshop works well on the BA, BFA and MFA levels or a mixture of all levels.
