Gesture/Mapping/Writing With James McElhinney And Emma Shapiro

gesture_mapping_aIn this drawing event, participants respond to observation via movement, working from a live model—performance and graphic artist Emma Shapiro. Exploring visual experience through gesture puts the act of drawing in dialogue with poses generated by the model. A series of exercises on regular white copy paper leads the participants to a fresh understanding of drawing as a path from vision to knowledge. The class culminates with a giant floor drawing in which “everyone is on the same page.”
