WORKSHOP  

       DANCE 'N DRAW!

'Taking a line for a walk'

What do dance and drawing have in common?

It is all about discovering the essence, weather of a shape or of a movement . . . and isn't it al about space and how we use it, be it a

blanc piece of paper or any physical space like a house, a supermarket, a theatre, a street . . . !?

 

The teachers of AFK will demonstrate that qualities like space, time, flow, rhythm, imagination etc. unite art forms like dance, painting, architecture and music. AFK believes all art forms are in fact expressions of the same 'thing’!

 

 

Questions we ask ourselves during this workshop are for

example: 

‘How can we suggest movement on a piece of paper?’, 

‘Can we draw with our body in space?’ and 

'What is the essential line of an object, pose or gesture?'

 

From a piece of paper into your own body . . . into space!

By using fun and stimulating tasks in which the concept of ‘line’ is central, we start moving and drawing, together or individually.

Slowly we’ll explore artist Paul Klee’s concept of ‘taking a line for a walk’ and taking it even a bit further...literally! 

We will make sa.o. several (line and shape) drawings and a short movement video.

The workshop is open to anyone who is open to a new experience.

No previous experience in dance or drawing or any art form is

required for this workshop!

Locations: The workshop 'Dance 'n Draw!' can be situated in museums, gardens, galleries, homes or other places where people can gather together. We can adjust the location to the wishes of your group or you can sign up to our workshops on pre-selected locations all around the country.
