Book a fun and creative private drawing or painting 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, however we have two successful models we recommend: Drawing with Body Movement and Life Drawing. See full workshop description 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.
1. 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.
2. Life Drawing
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.
