2 day course: Influences in Drawing: Sound, Light & Shadow - Camden Art Centre

Influences in Drawing: Sound, Light & Shadow is a two-day drawing course led by artist Deanio X.

During this course, students will explore the human form through figurative drawing with a life model, while also exploring the influence of a range of visual, audio and sensory stimulus on their drawing processes.

The course will guide students through creating emotional atmosphere in their drawings through a range of techniques including drawing in response to music and sounds from various global regions and with different coloured light to create shadowscapes.

During the course, students will create multiple drawings responding to the life model and environment using media such as pencil, charcoal, chalk, pastels and inks.


This course is suitable for people with all levels of experience in artmaking. All materials costs are included. Size restrictions apply.
