Emily Ball at Seawhite
Contemporary Drawing and Painting Courses
DRAWING WITH LIGHT
This week we have an exclusive preview of a brand new course, evolved from an innovative collaboration between 4 artists and tutors at the Seawhite Studio, Emily Ball, Katie Sollohub, Betsy Dadd and Lydia CS. Beginning in the Autumn, it will run fortnightly, each workshop tutored by two of the 4 artists and offering unique and inspiring approaches to how we see drawing.
Shedding New Light on Drawing
Shadows, silhouettes, torches, spotlights in a dark room.
Camera Obscura and slide projectors
Clay, papier mache, tape
Light sensitive emulsion and photographic paper
Monotypes - removing, adding and wiping to describe light.
The Drawing Lab is a brand new course providing inspiration and play to feed an artists entire practise and focus.
“Katie and I love teaching together, creating new ideas and encouraging students to play and find their own visual voice.
Betsy and Lydia are in high demand across the country to run their creative projects. They will bring their fresh input and ideas to the course which will include methods of animating students work to open up the possibilities of drawing”. Emily Ball
Kaleidoworks- Betsy Dadd and Lydia CS
Betsy Dadd and Lydia CS have devised engagement projects at the South London Gallery, V&A, RCA, Serpentine, Counterpoints Arts and completed residencies in India and Aida Refugee Camp, Palestine. They have also exhibited and screened work in London, Lisbon, Venice, Edinburgh, St Petersburg and Beijing.
CAC Animation Workshop 2
What they say:
"To us, participation is a means to adapt, share and collaborate in interdisciplinary exchange.
Developed in tandem with our studio practice, our workshops use hands-on processes with experimental digital techniques, exploring the collision between drawing, moving-image, sound and installation"
Experimenting with Light, Time and Colour.
Colour, Light, Shadow. 4
The Drawing Lab is all about experimental drawing. The themes of each term will direct the course content, help students have a focus, and will link from one session to the next, and from one term to the next. Over the whole year, the emphasis will be on experimentation , with exercises, processes and input from the course tutors.
Drawing with Light
Week, 1,2, & 3 Katie Sollohub and Emily Ball
The first 3 weeks of the course will provide opportunties to experiment and play with the effects of different light sources:
"through windows, glass, water, ice, bubbles
ink, movement, lava lamps!
torches, spotlights, glowsticks, lasers
a dark room, a camera obscure, slide projectors
Week 4 and 5 - Betsy Dadd and Lydia CS
Students will explore how materials, environment, process, change a drawing over time. They will be introduced to animation as an extension of drawing, a secondary process that works in tandem with material and hands on drawing.
There will be opportunties to use a wide range of new and exciting materials,
including light sensitive emulsion, and photographic paper (cyanotypes) - linking drawing to photography and learning how to use simple monotype processes - removing, adding, wiping ink to describe light.
Week 6 will finish the term with a session focusing on students projects - giving time to review and pursue ongoing work - explore developing and extending a project, repeating a process and getting feedback from the tutors and the group.
Drawing With Colour
"Light is therefore colour" JMW Turner
Resonate Still 3
This term will be launched with sessions linking back to the subject of light - the contents of light being colour, refraction, prisms - using the beginning of Spring to draw attention to emerging colour coming back into the world after winter....glimpses of colour, earth colours, winter colours, spring greens.
Students will have the opportunity to explore natural objects and materials and images derived from the natural world - flowers, stones, pigments, natural dyes, fabrics, jewels, stones, botanical drawings, geological drawings. They will explore and utilize what they find - splicing, slicing, magnifyng, distorting, creating a kaleidoscope.
There will be opportunities to make slides - for a microscope, OHP or old fashioned slide projector - using petals, shards of tissue, acetate, felt tip, etc. and make coloured paper and colour washes, to create collages.
Drawing with Paint
The course will continue with a playful and experimental theme, allowing time and space to explore questions about drawing and painting. A chance to put paint brush aside and make pigments and tools, using a range of materials.
With Summer on its way students can go out into the landscape and work with natural pigments directly, mud, petals, dyes, flowers and mixing these natural mediums with non-natural materials - nail varnish, cosmetics, dyes, household paints. This will give opportunities to create works using a range of mediums - clay, papier mache, tape, stones, etc. inspired by the work of such artists as Phylidda Barlow, David Blackaller and Jessica Stockholder.
