Muybridge and The Art of Movement – One day workshop 10.00-5.00pm
This one day course will delight anyone who would like to approach drawing in a fun and experimental way.
Spend the day learning to draw ‘movement’ by exploring the work of photographer, artist and proto cinematographer Eadweard Muybridge. (Born 1830, Surrey, Eng.—died 1904)
Known for his famous photographs of human and animal locomotion which used multiple cameras to capture movement in stop-motion photography, Muybridge laid the groundwork for generations of photographers, filmmakers, animators and artist to follow.
With the help of a wonderful model, this workshop will be an opportunity to delve deeper into Muybridge’s studies of movement as well as referencing images of his work.
Through the day we will be looking at ways in which drawing can be influenced by or portray movement, from creating ‘proto animations’- excellent for budding cartoonists and illustrators- to dealing with expressive drawing and gesture. This will be an exciting opportunity to experiment with your drawing in a totally unique way.
This workshop takes place over two Saturdays: 10am – 5pm.
Start Date: 29/04/2018
