Book a fun and creative private workshop!
How do we learn to be creative? Or to solve problems in a creative way? Often this is attributed to inspiration, a force we assume we have no control over; but it turns out there is a lot we can do to put ourselves into the right frame of mind. During this workshop your group will learn exercises designed to tap into the creative flow.
Workshops are customized to fit your group. A few successful modules we recommend are: Drawing with Body Movement, Life Drawing and Photo Transfer Salon. See workshop descriptions below.
- Schedule a 1 or 2 day workshop for your group at the Berlin Drawing Room, or we can travel to you.
- The workshop is customized for your office, classroom, or group of friends.
- Life Drawing with a nude model is a fun and creative way to kick off your Hen/ Stag Party!
Former clients include: Bombardier, Gidsy, Chapman University, City of London Freemen's School, Berlin Collective and numerous private groups.
Drawing with Body Movement
During this workshop we explore the concept of a gesture and what it means to make a mark. Starting with a warm up exercise to loosen up, we then work in partners to create large scale gestural drawings. We also look at examples of artists who have employed this concept and discuss their strategies, from action painter Jackson Pollock to experimental choreographer Trisha Brown.
Draw from a live model, nude or clothed. During this energetic workshop we draw from a variety of poses, progressing through a series of exercises from blind contour drawing to gestural drawing and more. We will look for shapes in negative space and find out what constitutes the essence of a pose. Our models are professional dancers and performers, bringing their own dynamic to the poses. This workshop is very successful with complete beginners, as well as those with more experience.
Photo Transfer Salon
Join us for an evening of art making in a laid back studio setting. Photo transfer is an accessible mixed media technique that can produce beautiful and layered results when combined with watercolor or acrylic paint. Each student will have a unique image that can then be painted over to create a finished work.
