In this workshop Sharon invites participants to explore mark-making, movement and writing. Working with our own bodies to create drawings from the inside out, we will move and draw using a variety of drawing tools. How does it affect the way we draw if we translate our movement and body experience into mark-making?
No experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothes, that you are happy to get dirty.
While in studio at Uillinn, this years Bealtaine Artist in Residence, Sharon Dipity will be investigating the dynamic between the drawn line and body movement in the context of her own experience of aging. Both embracing and transcending the limitations of an old injury, she will explore and create her own fluid vocabulary of mark-making, movement and gesture.
West Cork Arts Centre is a wheelchair accessible venue. There are wheelchair ramps to the right of the building (The Porch) and the left of the building (the courtyard of The Coffee Shop) which lead directly into Reception and The James O’Driscoll Gallery. There is an internal lift to bring patrons from the ground floor up to Gallery II and beyond.
Both of our galleries and The UCC and Bollinger Family space are fitted with an Induction Loop System to assist those with hearing impairment.
