MANSELL DRAWING WORKSHOP (article first published : 2001-04-27)

The BAT Centre invites artists, both experienced and otherwise, to a drawing workshop on May 19 and 20. The workshop will be conducted by Lushan Mansell, whose exhibition From Now is on at the BAT Centre's Menzi Mcunu Gallery from May 11 to June 5.

The workshop aims to help participants realise and develop their uninhibited, creative sides and to expose participants to the notion that drawing is more than a process of producing a carbon copy of the outside world -- that it is also a way of expressing the abstract. Mansell will use a combination of yoga as well as visualisation and breathing exercises used by actors to help focus the mind's eye inward, and relax the body and mind.

Using visual material, she will discuss the various properties of successful drawing and how they have been utilised in different ways by different artists. She will demonstrate various mark-making and layering techniques and discuss the viability of different mediums and formats.

Day one will concentrate on materials, techniques, composition, line, colour, rhythm, texture and form, with participants experimenting with various new mediums. The second day will be a creative one consisting of yoga and breathing exercises followed by a period of creativity and feedback.

The workshop, which runs from 09h00 to approximately 16h00 on both days is free but space is limited to 12. To book call Njabulo Hlongwane (031) 332-0451.
