Drawing becomes Performance – Workshop

A three hours workshop about Drawing Performance directed by Ram Samocha. Samocha is a multidisciplinary artist and the curator of Draw to Perform, an international symposium for Drawing performance.
Drawing performance is a stream of performance art in which artists create their artwork in front of a live audience while communicating with the viewers. Mark making in drawing performance is often a result of powerful physical gesture and body movement connects elements of line, movement, space and time.
The workshop will concentrates on the connection and combination between live action and drawing. It will allow participations to experiment with this practice and talk about possible options of process and presentation. Participating artists will be able to draw live, share and discuss their actions.
Materials such as pencils, charcoals, chalks and paper will be provided to all participations in the workshops.

Number of participants in each workshop: 15 people
