Live Life-drawing & Performance
Online Performances

NUDE

Part of the ‘Containment Project’
A series of eight online sessions/performances starting on 14 May 2020

LEVEL Arts Centre is launching its exciting new take on traditional life-drawing. In this remote, screen-based world we have suddenly found ourselves in, we are asking ourselves how bringing a 3D experience into a 2D medium (contained on a screen) can offer new perspectives and interesting ways of engaging with the human form and body. NUDE is a project comprising a series of live online events which provide unique opportunities to sketch, draw and mark paper in response to performances by a nude performer/model. For this first project the performer will explore the theme of ‘Containment’ (in all its meanings) as a starting point to create and prepare four improvised performances. Sessions can be untutored with the option to be guided by artist Georgia Peskett and are open to all aged 16+. 

These events will take place on Zoom, and will explore a variety of life-drawing techniques and ways of capturing motion, stillness and emotion. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, upload your work to our website and receive feedback.

 

Fee: pay as you feel.

These sessions are limited to 90 participants and booking is essential. 

Once you have signed up for the class, please ensure that you have a Zoom account set up. You can download Zoom at zoom.us. If you require any assistance with this, please get in touch. On the day of the class, the link to the Zoom meeting will be sent to you via email.

NUDE forms a part of the LEVEL CONTAINER Research & Development Project –  developing artistic material that challenges – explores – exposes perceptions of identity, disability and cultural pressures/belief surrounding our relationship with the naked human body. As a result, we welcome and actively encourage the participation of people with learning disabilities and carers and are able to provide resources and support to best enable this.
