In this art workshop, we will be blindly drawing a self-portrait, where we close our eyes and let our sense of touch lead our hands.
With one hand touching the contours of our face whilst the other hand is drawing what it feels, this technique will allow us to move freely around the paper without worrying or being too cautious of the final outcome. The idea is to let our sense of touch challenge us to 'see' in a different way. With life, nothing is perfect and with this workshop, we are wanting to capture the simplicity of life by just going with the flow.
Fiona will guide you through a blind drawing of yourself, before giving you an opportunity to reflect on your self perception as you add tones, colours and perhaps words to the final drawing.
This workshop will be experimental and relaxed, suitable for all adults who would like to try drawing without worrying that they 'cannot draw'. Everyone has a creative side, we just need to find ways to unleash it! If you can laugh about what you create then you are one step there because, really, what is art?
A4 paper or sketchbook
Magazine, scissors and a glue stick (optional - if you want to do some collage)
Workshop Leader: Fiona Tong
Fiona has worked with Ricefield Arts as a Community Workshop Leader since 2017. She is a visual artist and her work is experimental and free flowing. Her practice explores perception and seeing beyond what meets the eye, engaging in a dialogue between the self, awareness, space and spirituality through colour and line compositions, and this is often reflected in her workshops.
