Its back again! A series of energy training life drawing classes, specifically designed to help your drawing method become more fluid and relaxed, so the mind isn't controlling the visual outcome as much and the drawing comes more from your energy & intuitive self.
Some people experience the classes as an easier way to sketch, as you can let go of the normal drawing constraints and not have the usual judgments you place on your drawings.
Take your drawings to a new & exciting realm of contemporary life drawing & enhance your visual connection drawing from the present moment.
We will be doing LOTS of drawing, so please bring any paper (or drawing surface) you would like to use.
Your welcome to experiment, & I've had students in the past draw in old books or newspaper that have text on them OR scraps of cardboard OR any surface that you would like to experiment on.
The equipment I will be using is graphite - in a pencil holder, graphite stick, charcoal - in a holder & liquid graphite stick. These are my personal drawing medium preferences as they don't distract me whilst drawing, & glide on the surface, which I enjoy.....so no hard & fast rule to the mediums you bring, some students use a mix.
Your also welcome to use any other drawing mediums, i.e. ink, markers, etc.
The focus is on attaining the moment, not so much the medium used.
Through guided meditation, music and body awareness and movement, we prepare for the drawing state.
By drawing the figure (with life model) and use of still life composition in-between life drawing postures.
The still life will compose the mentioned elements.
Each week the elements will be posted, so stay linked to my Facebook & Instagram for updates and connection.
The mandalas are used as a point of focus and represent a visual communication of the intention during the class.
Each week the new vibration will be shown.
