Feeling the mark
Back 2 Basics
Blog week 1
The first of 5 classes in drawing essentials was an exploration of surface textures and form. The session was jam packed with quick experimental drawing techniques using variety of different drawing materials. Students were pushed out of their comfort zone when encouraged to draw an object through the sensation of touch, to draw without looking at their paper and to use their none dominant hand to create the work.
The resulting drawings are full of exciting and energetic marks which have been made more intuitively rather than overly intellectualised.
