THE WORKSHOP - BOTANICAL BACCHANAL
Patterns, 10 Marine Parade, Brighton BN2 1TL
2-4:30pm // £8 on the door // £6 early bird
This is a super playful workshop aimed at exploring our artistic imaginations through drawing plants.
In this workshop, we'll be swapping life drawing's usual naked bodies for luscious plants and their alluring leaves. Over the 2 hours we'll focus on exploring form and colour through an array of mediums - collage, paint, charcoal, pens and pencils. There will be playful quick-fire drawing rounds interspersing longer visual studies to ensure there's something for everyone. At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a wonderful collection of mini visual studies and a new appreciation for art, plants and Brighton's awesome venue, Patterns.
WHO IS IT FOR? - EVERYONE
Any previous practice in the arts will put you in good stead but it is not compulsory - We welcome complete creative newbies too! This workshop is about looking at the plants in a new way, having fun with lines and pushing our imaginations. There are no rights or wrongs, just visual play and good creative exercises.
There are no age restrictions on the workshop but ID will be needed at the bar.
WHAT TO BRING?
We have a wide selection of art materials and plenty of paper for communal use but would recommend bringing a personal kit if you have favourite working materials or a sketchbook you wish to fill.
