To Eduardo Abaroa drawing is an activity that can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of their profession, skill, or cultural background. His workshops are structured around a series of exercises, designed to open up the idea that drawing can be a catalyst for sensations and thoughts. Abaroa says “drawing regularly can amplify our perception of space and motor control, as well as generate a mental state similar to meditation. Drawing is a form of movement during which our perception perceives itself.”
In this two-day workshop you will have an opportunity to explore and to develop your drawing skills while being guided by Mexican artist Eduardo Abaroa and his experience in experimental drawing. Abaroa has an extensive art practice engaged in a myriad of artistic processes and topics that correspond to the ever-changing context of his home country. In his recent solo show Fields and Notions at The Engine Room, Abaroa’s drawings were a major feature.
Please bring your preferred drawing materials along: these can be any types of pens and a notebook or a visual diary. We will also have some basic drawing equipment on hand. Anyone is welcome to attend the workshops, including those who do not have a drawing practice. Coffee and tea are provided.
