Description: 

“To draw we need to learn how to ‘see’, to do this we need to understand the five perceptual skills of drawing” 
Betty Edwards, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. 

Join us for this five-week intensive drawing course, based around the 5 basic principles of drawing: Line and Edge; Shape and Space, Light and Darks, Relationships and Bringing it Together. 

Increase your confidence as we discover the basic principles of drawing together. Be prepared to make lots of ‘mistakes’- the best way to learn - and do lots of practice! 

Week 1: Line and Edge - using a range of drawing tools including pencil, graphite, charcoal and erasers to explore the shape and quality of line.

Week 2: Shape and Space – looking for negative space in the pose and applying it to shape what you are drawing, using chalks, coloured pastels, and coloured paper.

Week 3: Lights and Darks – using a charcoal ground and putty rubbers, to explore shading and highlights and to create improved three dimensional form in your drawings.

Week 4: Relationships – use guides and artist techniques to create more accurate perspective and proportion in your drawings, using colour and texture.

Week 5: Bringing it together – the opportunity to choose your preference of materials, to create an artwork applying all the skills and techniques covered on the course.

Description: 

November 24th 4-6pm, Body mapping workshop by Debbie Lee.

Body mapping: ‘using the outline of the body as a container for exploring identity’…

On the 24th of November at 4pm artist Debbie Lee will be hosting a two-hour guided body mapping workshop in our Aldgate gallery space.

The intention of the workshop is to explore positive body image through creative expression, by using your body outline as a container. This technique is inspired by eastern medicine charts, body painting and tattoos as well as children’s x ray drawings. You will leave the session with your very own self-portrait body mapping.

Debbie Lee is a Dorset-based artist. Her background is in drawing and painting, however more recently Lee has turned her research to Indian folk art while training to be an art therapist. Lee’s work often incorporates domestic scenes and nature alongside her portraits showing a surreal and intimate connection between the self and subconscious.

Please bring an apron if you wish, and any means to transport your work.

All other materials provided but you are welcome to bring your own.

Body mapping with Debbie Lee:

24th November 4pm until 6pm
