Drawing and the soul
A 5-week course on drawing and the soul
A Saturday Morning 5 week- drawing course. We will work with the self-portrait, portrait, inner landscapes and freestyle drawing, using different art materials such as dry media, ink or watercolour. The course begins by helping participants free their drawing style, and teaching them some of the foundational techniques of drawing. On a second stage, we will work with drawing mindfully while deeply anchored and held by the place of the soul. We will draw inspired by poetry, music, ancient texts and artwork done by other artists, musicians and poets who have explored the soul.
And what is the soul? The soul is the 'driver' in the body. It is the roohut or spirit or atman, the presence of which makes the physical body alive. It is the feeling of "presence". What happens to our drawings when we relax into that presence and let the drawing happen?
During the course, you will be expected to produce a portfolio of drawings, in the sketchbook format (A4) and sometimes using larger sheets of paper. The artwork produced will be part of a final exhibition to happen in London, and it will also be on display at our virtual gallery.
The course will happen on zoom with the possibility of attending the sessions in person at my studio for the ones living in London.
5 Saturday mornings from 10 to 1 PM.
17, 24, 31 October and 7, 14 November.
50 Pounds for the whole course (concessions available).
