How do you draw a smell, taste, a sound or what you can feel?
Artist Jackie Brown leads a drawing workshop focusing on our immediate senses and how to turn these into a drawing. We will explore what our senses tell us about our inner and outer environments, offering a fascinating insight into how to express ourselves fully through drawing a sensation or a feeling.
2 Minute Interview
How does your workshop with NOW Live Events relate to being in the moment?
During these workshops participants will be encouraged to isolate senses, giving them a heightened sense of the basic sensations that inform us about the world around us. Can you communicate what you are touching with the tips of your fingers, blindfolded to another person who will attempt to draw what you are saying? How will they draw what you are telling them? This activity will help us reconnect with our fundamental sensations of touch, sight,smell and hearing.
What are you most looking forward to doing within your NOW Live Events slot?
I am looking forward to meeting the NOW Live Events team as I know you put on great events with lively interesting people. I have presented this workshop before with various groups and it always produces interesting results and illustrates what a fascinating activity drawing is.
Any tips on how the audience can best benefit from your workshop with NOW Live Events?
Come along with an open mind, drawing can be many things, so be prepared to see it in a different way.We will be trying to represent a feeling or a sensation rather than representing something you can see.
