Dance and drawing provide a common freeing of the spirit in space and time. Drawing workshops are inspired by the teachings of Johanna Exiner and Barbara Cuckson. Inspiration comes also from my experience as an animator of human movement within a dynamic natural world.
Exercises in body placement, strengthening, flexibility, dynamics and improvisation lead to the practice and creation of movement patterns. Taking turns to dance and draw allows for recognition of relationships between patterns experienced in three dimensions and marks made in two dimensions that combine experience and observation of movement. A range of drawing materials is explored.
Workshops offer a supportive, non-competitive environment for students of dance, drawing and animation. Beginners in all mediums are welcome.
