Drawing and the soul
A 5 week course on drawing and the soul.
A Saturday morning 5 week drawing course. We will work with drawing and the journey of the soul using different art materials - dry media, ink and watercolour. The course will help participants free their drawing style, developing their mindful drawing.
Guided heart centred meditations will keep your work deeply anchored and held by the soul. We will draw inspiration from poetry, music, ancient wisdom texts and other artists, musicians and poets who have explored the soul.
And what is the soul? According to ancient mystical traditions the soul is the 'driver' in the body. It is the vehicle of spirit, breath or Atman, the presence which infuses the physical body with life.
What happens to our drawings when we relax into that presence and let the drawing happen? What messages are there for you to hear?
Ancient texts and storytelling
This course, will explore the stories and ancient texts (Tao te ching, i ching, conference of the birds, Rumi poetry and others) that through times and in varied traditions have addressed the soul.
During the course, you will produce a portfolio of drawings. The artwork produced will be used to assemble an artist book, making a wonderful document of your journey through the workshop.
The course will be on Zoom with the possibility for London residents of attending live sessions at my studio
