Art Dance Mashup Project

testing testing
My project window is from 4 – 6pm at Tanger Outlets The Walk in Atlantic City on Saturday, June 23, 2018.

Lead & follow dance. It’s almost kind of an installation of sorts, in and of itself. Temporary and visual, only really present in a couple of moments full of body language, rhythm, communication, energy, movement, gesture, cause and effect, interesting shapes and forms and lines… connection.

I’ve been refining this idea about art, dance, and communication and thinking up a way to capture it in a project. It finally feels like it might be starting to come together, which has me (really) excited. I got the opportunity to move along with this art / dance mashup project during 48Blocks. It should be interesting to explore one of the elements of lead & follow dance: connection, as an installation of sorts. A painting will become a byproduct of the dance conversation.

My project window is from 4 – 6pm at Tanger Outlets The Walk in Atlantic City on Saturday, June 23. I hope you can come.

There’s sketch club that meets on the 4th Monday of every month at the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts in Millville.

I went last month for the first time and very much enjoyed it. The model, Robin was fantastic. We did a number of 1 minute croquis, a couple of 5-10 minute poses, and two 20 minute poses. I turned one of those into the oil painting pictured above. Continue reading “Figure drawing in Millville March 26”
