"Thingness" of Things: Magical Drawing Class - Every Object is Alive! (Workshop)
During the summer months Drawing Room will host two weekend Drawing Workshops which have been conceived in collaboration with Salon Particulier Projects.
Bonnie Camplin "Thingness" of Things: Magical Drawing Class - Every Object is Alive!
Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th July 10:30 – 5pm
When drawing from ‘still’-life can we learn to recognise which of the three cognitive operations - MEMORY, OBSERVATION or INVENTION - is active within any one moment? Bonnie Camplin will explore dreams, memory re-call and imagination in this magical workshop where the days will be divided into exercises that are designed to activate the faculties of memory, invention and observation. Each day will culminate in a film screening. Participants are asked to bring in a favourite object as a working aid; Camplin will suggest ways to animate this object, magically transforming it to life.
Bonnie Camplin lives and works in London. She has showed nationally and internationally and has collaborated with Enrico David, Mark Leckey, Lucy MacKenzie and Paulina Olowska. Recent projects include Soundworks, ICA, London and she is currently artists’ mentor for the LUX Associates Programme.
FEE: £120 including materials, lunch and light refreshments. The workshop runs for 2 consecutive days
