Understanding Composition – Static + Movement
Thu 21 Jan – 1 hour(s)
Fire up your creativity with this webinar designed to inspire you to get making and investigating at home. In this session artist Alice Mumford focusses on a key concept of composition, static and movement in painting and the power of repetition.
As artist/tutor, a strong, professional empathy is essential to the courses I ‘build’ for those already engaged in their creative thinking and practices. Teaching is more a dialogue, an inclusive process of respect for each artists’, individual communication, development and talents in visual art.
The Health Benefits of Life Drawing
Life drawing has slipped in and out of vogue in recent decades, but as public attention shifts to the importance of mental health and wellbeing, it is enjoying something of a resurgence. A recent study by the BBC and Newcastle University compared memory and cognition in a group of 30 adults: they asked 10 to walk briskly, 10 to do puzzles such as crosswords and sudoku and 10 to attend life drawing classes. The experiment took place over 8 weeks, with a series of tests carried out across the volunteers at the beginning of the study and at the end. The life drawers, it turned out, showed significant improvement in memory and cognitive function following the experiment.
