ONLINE Performance Drawing Workshop

Performance Drawing Workshop Todd Carroll

ONLINE Performance Drawing Workshop 
at School of Visual Arts Continuing Education
FEB 13 - MAR 20, 2023

(Mondays 6-8:00 PM (EST) -5 sessions)
Faculty: Anabella Lenzu

In a time where feeling disconnected from our bodies is the new normal, this course helps students explore their own body and presence by conjuring body images and physical gestures. We will explore issues of identity, social relationships, and agency, through study and the shared creative process.

Students will become familiar with key ideas in performance, as well as important artists like Trisha Brown, Anna Halprin, Carolee Schneemann, the Gutai Group, Ana Mendieta, and Tony Orrico. Inspired by these figures, we will engage in a set of vigorous and liberating creative exercises using the Body Mapping technique, where texts, drawings and movement will be employed to share the stories of our bodies and experience.

Participants will create 2D (drawing, photography, video, collage, and mixed media), and later 3D compositions (site-specific, installations, dance, theater, and performance art), to expand their artistic vocabulary. This course is ideal for visual artists looking to expand their work in performance, as well as anyone looking to get back in touch with their body and art.  

NOTE: All students with active registration in this course will be given free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud. This course is fully online and offered through a combination of regularly scheduled sessions during the listed course hours, as well as asynchronous material that may include prerecorded lectures and media, and interactive discussions.
