Light Sensitive – Chiaroscuro &  Tenebrism, Charcoal & Shadow

Held in a large theatre space at the Gorman Arts Centre and inspired by the play of light and shadow across traditions of western painting and photography, this workshop will explore dramatic and nuanced approaches to shadow, light and form. Beginning with cyanotype prints – an alternative photographic process – the class will create prints of the model’s shadow and body. These prints will become starting points for reduction drawings that incorporate a heavy use of charcoal and erasure to evoke the behaviour of light and the model’s form.

Large sheets or a pad of drawing paper (A2-A1)
Compressed charcoal (soft)
