Masterclasses/Workshops for Adults 2015

February Masterclass/Dosbarth Meistr Chwefror
Louise Payne RCA/AFG

‘Approaching Essence: Drawing from the Heart.’

There is a buzzword used in this current era, termed by Arjuna Ardagh in his book ‘The Translucent Revolution’ which is called ‘Translucent Art.’ 
He states that this art comes ‘through’ us and not ‘from’ us. He is talking about getting ourselves out of the way so that Pure Creative Flow can operate – through our hearts and not our heads.

This workshop will be exploring techniques to help you do just that!

You will be trying out exercises and techniques to relax the mind, get in touch with the body, and find that place of Pure Being – the deep inner relation between your True Self and the Divine Source. Through loving attention and trusting the process, creativity can speak through you, in the way it does naturally for young children. The day will combine drawing methods which relax and express through release, as well as those that foster a quiet focusing in through careful observation. 

You will be doing some meditative observational drawing. Please bring with you a collection of small and interesting natural objects e.g. shells, stones, leaves, insects. You will need paper of various sizes up to A1, if possible, charcoal, inks/watercolours, and drawing pencils of varying softness, twigs and feathers for making drawings … or anything you wish to play with!!!

‘It is in the object, Beauty, that love virtually coincides with knowledge.”
