USE THE SCROLL BAR

Saturday June 22nd

Experimental Drawing Workshop using sound.
run by Jennifer Eden and Jenny Clarke. 1.00pm 3.00pm.

Participants were provided with a wide range of drawing media and led in a series of drawing exercises whilst hearing a selection of sounds, from the mundane to the weird and wonderful. The sounds, including the spoken word, were designed to inspire creative mark making.

The workshop was inspired by the work of musician/artist John Cage, and artists Wassili Kandinsky and Paul Klee, who used sound as an impetus for visual art, and experimented with linking different art forms.

Children and adults became very involved and enjoyed the session, producing a series of unique pictures, aided perhaps by the unplanned mysterious alarm (not the fire alarm!) that rang in the building for some of the time!

We ended up with a wonderfully colourful wall full of expressive pictures, even by those who felt they 'couldn't draw'. Everyone can make marks, and everyone at the workshop found inspiration in the words and sounds.

Hall Orchard Primary School at The Generator gallery,
Summer 2002
Workshop by Paul Gent

I met teacher Rose Birdsall and her class of about 25-30 children having their picnic in Queens park before going to the Artspace exhibition. (A custom started last year and hopefully for years to come) When arriving to the Generator Gallery the first thing the children notice is the size of the space and the knowledge that they could be free to run around. (It wouldn't be so much fun to be restricted in a cramped space)

The first thing the children did was to run around the many different artworks, with the encouragement to look closely at the works, and choose the ones that they liked best and would like to base their own work from.

The most popular work were the 3d pieces, like nita rao's towers, but I was happy that some individuals were attracted to the abstract pieces also, such as Barry Miles oil paintings.

Some wonderful interpretations of the artspace exhibition were produced, but most importantly the children were able to experience such a wide range of original artwok in an enjoyable atmosphere.
