NYC Drawing the Dancer Workshop Hosted by NYC Drawing the Dance
About This Show
This is a drawing/painting workshop with moving dancers. This is a rare opportunity for artists to workshop with moving figures that can create an interesting challenge. I am excited to organize these workshops for the artists. I expect you to have prior knowledge of drawing and painting to be able to try out these challenging workshops. Please bring your own supplies. Please Read On to get more information before signing up… Thank you.
Absolutely no photography or video recording without permission.
Be friendly and respectful.
Please turn off your cell phones when in workshop sessions.
Overall session time is 2 hours. We will have 3 segments of 30 minutes drawing sessions of dancers doing their dance routines or rehearsing or improvising or exploring with pauses and poses, with a 5 to 10 minutes break in between. There is a beautiful bar in the lounge and you are welcome to socialize after the workshop ends.
Everyone cleans up.
