How many of you out there have done a course or two with Matthew Harris and felt really inspired. I have done several of his courses now and each time I learn something new. Matthew manages to see so much in something quite mundane, maybe a 'simple mark, shape or line' and is able to show you ways that you had not thought of to develop the ideas and push forward.
This is what Matthew has to say about this course.
"The aim of this workshop is to explore playful ways in which images and visual information can be generated and developed through drawing. By working with individual imagery gathered in sketch books, photographs etc, we will be trying to exploit the potential of sometimes the most simple and mundane scraps of image, mark and shape."
Day 1 ~ DRAWING
You will be working from a series of sketchbook images, drawings, photographs etc and explore a number of exercises and processes that will allow you to generate and develop visual information from an apparently simple starting point. By the end of the day you should have a series of images that will form the starting point for the work on day 2
