Connecting our inner spirit with our capacity to draw. A day of contemplative drawing with artist and teacher Michelle Charles.
Our hands serve as instruments to hold, touch, make things and gesture. They carry the history of our ancestors and are often used to connect in prayer.
Our faces are an expression of how we feel and how we experience happiness and joy, sadness and grief.
This workshop is instructive, drawing tuition will be offered generously and gently with encouragement for all levels, from the beginner (maybe you haven’t drawn since school and want to draw portraits) to, the advanced.
The day will integrate sitting and walking meditations in our beautiful surrounding garden to prepare and settle our minds for some lively and inspired drawing. The only requirement for this day is for you to attend, there is no good and no bad, we are all beginners and a beginner’s mind will serve you well. Michelle will start the day with a presentation on portrait and hand drawing as they pertain to art history and connectivity. At this time following lockdown, you will be taught and encouraged to sharpen new drawing skills that connect and depict aspects of what it is to be human.
A glimpse into the process of the artist!
