Creative Drawing Workshop – 3 Days
June 6, 2023
A mindful and immersive 3 day intensive drawing workshop.
This course is loosely based on Bauhaus principles where we will work in an expressive and gestural fashion. Over the three days a series of short and longer drawing tasks will be set, plus there will be the opportunity to work on a longer drawing project.
The aim of the course is to develop creativity and explore ways of seeing, enjoying considered and exciting mark making, working from nature. Tasks and challenges can be tailored to individual needs. Time will be given to short periods of mindfulness and discussion.
Course Leader Robert Lamoon is a practicing Faversham based artist and curator. After 30 years teaching Design and Art, Lamoon retired from full time teaching to concentrate on his own work. His work is broad-based, from Photography to Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Automata and the creation of installations. In 2014 Lamoon was Artist in Residence at the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in Canterbury. It was there that he started to describe his practice as Visual Storyteller, creating pieces inspired by myth, legend, India and nature. He was taught mindfulness mediation by an Indian Sadhu.
Lamoon believes that all people can draw if they really want to and are willing to commit to regular practice, adhering to the mantra ‘Just do it’. This course is suitable for adults of all abilities, from absolute beginners to well practiced artists.
£150.00 per person, all materials, equipment, tuition and light refreshments included. Bookings are non-refundable.

This is a 3 day workshop, Tuesday 6th June, Tuesday 13th June and finishing on Tuesday 20th June 2023.
