Advanced masterclass. Continuing our series of professional development masterclasses, which, are designed for those with considerable previous experience within the visual arts.
This workshop will take you on an adventure. We will explore the movement of image and the development of narrative through experiments in drawing and mixed media.
Working with low tech methods and techniques we will take our ideas on a journey, exploring motion and action. Interacting with our drawings and created structures, working frame by frame to create a series of still or moving images. We will record and explore image and movement using our phones, ipads or cameras.
We will experiment with viewpoint and scale, distance and focus,contrast and colour, testing ideas in two and three dimensions
Creating the narrative through an exploration of drawing, collage, print working in relief, cut-out, cut-through, construction, layer, paint and stitch. We will work with an extensive range of materials and media, selecting the familiar and the unusual to explore the potential of story, image and movement.
Working with personal concepts, ideas, themes, inspirations, we will give breath to image, pattern, shape and form creating (animated) pieces that bring composition and narrative alive. Ideas may be a series of stills or a collection of animated experiments.
Interpretations will be worked, changed, developed and recorded at every stage to create a body of work that will be a standalone sequence or the springboard for further development
