Drawing performance is a stream of performance art in which artists create their artwork in front of a live audience while communicating with the viewers. Mark making in drawing performance is often a result of powerful physical gesture and body movement connects elements of line, movement, space and time.
The upcoming workshop session by Draw to Perform will include three bookable workshops, provided by artists, dancers, and performers. The workshops will explore drawing performance and strategies for forming a dialog between drawing, sound, dance, process and performance. Participants will draw live, share and discuss their outcomes and ideas. Workshops will target different groups and issues in drawing and performance and will allow the general public the opportunity to experience an art form first hand, work with and be tutored by some of the leading artists in their field.
All of the workshops are suitable for all ages and do not require prior drawing experience. Participation of children (8+) is encouraged and this could be a wonderful whole-family experience of creativity and fun.
