Event description
A unique experience–a combination of art and nonverbal communication.

About this event

Face It! Emotions, Expressions, Drawing and Clay

In this two-part workshop, I combine my unique expertise and experience in universal expressions and sculpture. I’ll share the fascinating secrets of our core emotions (happiness, anger, fear, surprise, disgust and sadness) and the distinct facial expressions which accompany them.

Be prepared to try mimicking the muscle movements of expressions–this usually comes with giggles! Then express your creativity and hone your artistic skills, exploring the universal expressions of emotion through drawing and clay.

You’ll walk away with:

  • a fresh understanding of emotion
  • the ability to read true emotion in the people you interact with
  • a series of experimental drawings
  • a face sculpted from clay

No prior experience necessary, all abilities welcome.

Materials and equipment are provided and included in the cost.

*Clay work produced will not be fired to keep sessions affordable.

All my evening classes for adults are BYO drinks welcome. There is, of course, no obligation to drink alcohol. There’s a late opening Dome Cafe next to the venue, if you’d rather bring a coffee. Hot and cold water are available on request at the venue and I have a selection of teas available.

SESSION 1

Includes a talk about emotion, universal expressions and microexpressions, followed by an experimental drawing session–portraits.

As well as being a lot of fun, experimental drawing reduces drawing inhibitions, making you feel less precious about the drawing itself so that you can relax and enjoy the process. It quickly improves observational skills and drawing automatically improves. It’s a great way to introduce anyone to drawing and a good warm-up activity for artists.

SESSION 2

In session two, we’ll use the full session to sculpt an expression of your choice using clay.
