Drawing Your Space

Study Days: Drawing Your Space
Considering and supporting creative resilience through spatial drawing

Artists, Educators, Designers, Creative Practitioners, Students pre- and post- Graduates and those whose creative life is essential to who they are.

These Study Days reflect on and consider creative thinking and practice. Designed to stimulate and consider the space one needs to make and think, we ponder on and wonder with each person; how to develop, protect and stimulate their creative identity.

‘These days were really helpful for me : separating and sorting public and personal; introvert and extrovert’  Study Day Participant

ACTIVITY:   we use ideas and notions of ‘drawing’ and ‘space’ to think physically and exercise boundaries so we can reflect on our own creative spaces and thoughts. We use three dimensional ideas of drawing and constructing.

THE DAY:    starts with an artists talk and ideas about #DrawingYourSpace followed by reflective making exercises before and after lunch.

FOLLOW UP DAY:  we hold a Follow-up day in which we expand the activities and give each person a chance to develop, strengthen and share their thinking that has taken shape since the first day.  It is a requirement to do Day 1 before joining a Follow – up Day.

VENUE:  the day is held at General Office, 12 Hagley Road, Stourbridge DY8 1PS IMPORTANT INFO:   This venue only has stair access to the studio space – unfortunately there is no wheelchair access at present.

CHARGE:  £75 for one day – to include materials.  £130.00 to include a Follow-up day.

#DrawingYourSpace Study Days are born from the Drawing in Space two day activity that were part of the Artist Teacher Scheme at Birmingham City University, School of Art. These were designed to lead Art Teachers back towards their artistic practice and identity.  Sarah Goudie led this element of the course for five years alongside Elena Thomas – their experience of working with different groups over the years has greatly informed their current individual and collaborative artistic and educational practices.

‘It’s great to be part of something that we have seen makes such a difference to the way people think about their creativity and practice!’   Elena Thomas
