Expressive Drawing Workshop21st November 2019
Location: The Threshing Barn, Llwyn Celyn, Cwmyoy, Abergavenny, NP7 7NE
In the delightful setting of Llwyn Celyn, drawing will be explored through expressive, mark making techniques using ink, charcoal, pen, gouache and pencil, onto a variety of beautiful papers including Japanese mulberry paper, tracing paper and watercolour papers.
Anna will introduce a number of drawing processes and will encourage you to
respond to natural materials such as bark, stones, shells etc through slow, mindful observation using sensations such as touch and smell, as well as looking at objects. You will be encouraged to create your own unique vocabulary of mark making through approaches to line, tone, and collage techniques.
The drawing workshop is about investigating your potential without judgement and allowing yourself to become absorbed in the process . The pace will be gentle and unrushed with an emphasis on open ended creativity and possibilities rather than rigid outcomes. Anna will suggest a number of staring points for the drawings and will guide you along the way to find your own wonderful expressive drawings.
Cost: £25 to include materials, and refreshments.
