Australian artist, Denis Clarke, is in Norwich for Paint Out‘s art competition and events the week of 19-23 October. Before hitting the streets of Norwich with over 40 other artists and some 80 artists on Thursday at the mass Mousehold Heath ‘paint out’ he will be delivering an art workshop on Monday 19 October. Open to artists of all abilities, why not get enthused and inspired by this rare opportunity to be taught by a visiting experienced artist and art teacher.
Bold and Expressive: Mixed Media From Life
The workshop is titled “Bold and Expressive: Mixed Media From Life” and is an introduction to some diversions from habitual ways we look and draw from a subject. Methods might be challenging to get your thinking more attuned to a practice of learning to see form and space using drawing media as well as paint. Expressive use of mark and gesture will be encouraged.
Matisse proclaimed that to see things fresh and as if for the first time, “as if with the eye of a child” was a constant effort. Drawing is an ongoing dialogue in which you are being encouraged to suspend disbelief so as to encourage all the senses to respond. The sense of touch or imagined sense of touch seems to be as present in all good drawing as the sense of sight. Clumsiness and refinement, accident and control, may interchange in the process.
The otherness or impact of nature seems to be our ongoing goal to a realization of a meaningful statement in a mix of drawing media as well as paint.
Denis is renowned for devising and delivering innovative master class courses linking observational drawing to creative and experimental methods with drawing and mixed media. This is a rare opportunity to learn from an international artist and art teacher.
