A DRAWING MARATHON
Brendan credits the direction of his current practice to his experience with the New York Studio School’s famous 'Drawing Marathon'.
This summer he brings that unique experience to Auckland in an intensive 4-day drawing fiesta.
We will be working with 2 models in a domestic setting, opening up opportunities to explore spatial concepts, narrative, and the power of the image within the picture plane. Additionally, we will be looking at historical precedents so as to deepen our understanding of drawing, particularly composition and the extent to which drama plays its part.
Intellectually rigorous, physically challenging and surprising in its stratagem for discoveries, the Drawing Marathon gives the student a real understanding of the language and importance of drawing today and in the past.
