Join us for the second Walk and Draw workshop. Register at [email protected]
This drawing workshop will introduce the idea of personal mapping of the city / Cardiff Bay through a range of responses – including drawing, talking, writing and iPhone visual note taking. Part of our experience of living in the 21st century is linked to fragmentation: the drawing-walking workshop will show you how to scan the landscape and pinpoint detail. Various drawing strategies will be introduced throughout the day. Workshops will be run by 2 artists involved in the Paper Exchange exhibition.
The Chinese Folding book is central to the workshop. These books when unfolded can be up to 2 metres long, however when folded they are very compact.
The sessions start with about a half hour looking round the gallery preparing, followed by the walk. This will take about an hour or an hour and a half, followed by a discussion and another hour to work a little more on the books.
Each participant will be provided with a small folding sketchbook. BayArt will provide various papers for rubbings, water soluble pencils, graphite sticks and various drawing materials for use during the workshop.
Please bring cameras, mobiles, sketching material, protective clothing. If the weather is inclement please be ready for short sessions of outdoor walking and wear suitable clothing.
Another Walk and Draw workshop takes place on 4th May 1 – 4pm at Art Central, Barry in connection with the Open Books show.
