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. 

It was really great. Everyone enjoyed as it was something absolutely new, innovative for sure so that I am proud of my idea and the fact that you made it happen. I have really appreciated your dedication Mira. For me really it is hard to find area of improvements as both lenght and structure of the workshop were perfect.

I just wanted to leave feedback on what a great experience we had at The Berlin Drawing Room. 13 of us took part in a Life Drawing class as part of my friend’s hen party celebrations in Berlin. We had a brilliant time! The structure of the class was perfect for us novices - beginning with shorter sketches and increasing the length of sketching over the two hours. Mira was a great tutor and the model was very patient us, and happy to strike a pose with our Bride-to-be! All in all, our group would highly recommend the workshop, especially if you’re looking for something a bit different.

Thank you for the life drawing class, it was a great hen activity and we all really enjoyed learning something new and getting to take the drawings home. We would definitely recommend the class for others who are looking for something different to do whilst in Berlin as everything was provided we just had to turn up. Antonis the model was good fun too, chatting and wishing our bride to be his congratulations - she even got to sit for a pose herself! As we left we all commented on how relaxed we felt after drawing too. Definitely something to be done again.
