About the Event
Watching someone create, using skills honed over years, is such a joyful and inspiring thing. This special Animal-Artists in Action session is part of a series exploring (and generally geeking-out over), artists who celebrate the natural world in their work.
I always wanted the Elephant in the Room sessions to be a friendly and relaxing space to create, so I'm not going to go all formal on you now! These feature sessions are designed to give everyone a brilliant insight into the creative process of another artist, whilst still having the opportunity to be creative yourself, under your own steam. We'll all be able to see both the imagery the artist is working from, as well as watching the artist's action itself. You can choose to draw, paint or doodle away whilst listening to all the creative chat, or, simply watch in awe at another creative mind at work!
Time for something a little different! Our feature artist this month is sculptor Tracy Roberts and she's going to be sculpting live during this two hour session! Tracy specialises in portrature sculpture and will be sculpting a Basset Hound whilst we all have access to the imagery she will be working from to draw, or indeed sculpt from ourselves. Why not get hold of a bag of clay and have a go yourself?!
This session will work a little differently with the access to images. Rather than a split screen, you will be given access to a selection of images to enjoy drawing or sculpting from that you can arrange on your screen, or print and pin around you. Tracy's workspace will be full screen.
NB...This is not a teaching session but a brilliant opportunity to geek out watching another artist create and listen to Q&As all whilst being able to create yourself. Of course you can ask questions throughout - artists are always happy to share!
All levels of creatives are welcome to these sessions and there is never any pressure to share your work if you don't want to. What you can expect is to find an encouraging group of animal-loving artists who love the challenge of drawing all creatures great and small, feathered or fishy, we love them all!
PLEASE ARRIVE IN PLENTY OF TIME - the sessions are always jam-packed with footage so I try to start promptly at 7pm so it's a good idea to jump on the zoom ten mins beforehand to get settled. I can of course let you in if you arrive late (I'm no meany!) : )
