  • Drawing Dance Workshop

    On the 28th April Tania Kovats and I ran a drawing dance workshop in the Wimbledon College of Arts theatre for our students. Tania is the Course Leader for MA Drawing at WCA so her students joined my BA Theatre Design students for an incredibly inspiring day drawing dancers Aaron Vickers, Oxana Panchenko and Kirill Burlov perform. We were also joined by students from MA Painting and MFA. Here is a comment about the day from MFA student Frederic Anderson, I was very pleased to be invited to take part in this workshop. As someone with a background in figure drawing I know what a rare privilege it is to be able to draw from trained contemporary dancers. They have a unique energy and presence and in my experience this translates into drawings with unique qualities.
