Term 3: Draw Together
August 19, 2017 @ 10:30 am - September 2, 2017 @ 12:30 pm UTC+10
Please join Roy Marchant and Priscilla Bourne for Draw Together as we adjust our sensitivities to visually explore our show Every Dog Will Have Its Day, a contemporary group exhibition that employs a humorous approach to the emotional connection between people and dogs. (22 July – 17 September 2017 | Hopper Gallery)
If my Dog could Draw asks you to consider a different way of seeing the world around us. Dogs are arguably our most loyal of pet companions, but just how well do we understand them? Imagine how Tyson, Tilly or Cosmo actually see the world, their sense of smell alone is bewildering to us. For just an hour and 30 minutes, transform yourself into the one who is most often left outside the gallery. How would we visualise and be stimulated by such an ‘odoramic’ life? We will productively litter the gallery with amazing smell-o-graphic proposals, create a canine equivalent of yourself and attempt to design a human toy from a doggy perspective. What if your Dog could draw? They would definitely make sure to be at Draw Together on Saturday 19 August.
Draw Together Is a weekend drawing workshop for ages 8 and up. All abilities are welcome; simply bring your enthusiasm for art. Each session is an exploration of artworks through the immediacy of drawing. You, your friends and family will be guided through a series of individual and collaborative drawing based exercises responding directly to our exhibited artworks. In Draw Together you’ll appreciate the value of drawing, develop visual thinking skills and create something new in an inspiring atmosphere. Make new friends, while you make new art, come and Draw Together at Casula Powerhouse Liverpool.
During our winter program Draw Together will be examining the following exhibitions:
19 August Every Dog will have its Day
2 September Near x Far
16 September Blood on Silk: Last Seen
