FACEBOOK : « The Joy of Abstract Drawing »

Come and join Blandine Bardeau for an evening of abstract art making in the beautiful Curious Duke Gallery space. We will explore free drawing using simple yet powerful exercises aimed at loosening-up into a playful, more childlike state of creativity.
Most of us as adults are terrified of making a mistake, doing the «wrong thing», and as a consequence we have stopped making art at all. This workshop aims to open-up a new page, to go beyond the fear and pressure of producing a «good result», to see that we can all make art and that it is an enjoyable, powerful practice. Students will be encouraged to experiment, play and try out new things and to start developing their own artistic language. No previous experience required, just a willingness to explore and be surprised.

In this workshop you will:

-Learn exercises you can easily use to start abstract artworks

-Learn to enjoy the process rather than focusing on the end result

-Produce some exciting and surprising artworks

-Discover how inspiring art making with others can be

"I had identified a need to devote some time to concentrating on my artistic practice. The course proved to be exactly what I wanted and needed. I spent time supported by a group of like-minded yet creatively diverse people in an atmosphere of calm, and with activities led by someone with whom I immediately felt a connection and whose philosophy and approach to the subject gained my immediate respect."
