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.

I wanted to pass that along because I know many of you guys are on dance teams, have performance groups, and are in bands.

For this event I’m doing an art – dance connection mashup project. It’s one I’ve been thinking up for some time. I’m pretty excited about it so please come see… and reach out if you want in. You’re going to find this hard to believe but it’s going to be messy and lead-follow partner dance-y and fun, of course. Time, location, details coming.

Check out what they have planned. I’ve been to some planning meetings and this is a group of wonderfully creative people.

I think there are still sponsorship opportunities available too.

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”

Another life drawing session is probably coming up next week ON!

Details via Meed:

Dear Artists,

Our next drawing session is scheduled for Thursday, 2/8.  Our model will be Warren.  He is a great croquois model.  Let’s draw him!  We can all benefit, like all artists, from working on our drawing.  Bring lots of paper, and your favorite fast medium!

Who’s in?  RSVP deadline is Tuesday, 2/6. 5pm.

Hoping to work with you.  By the way, this life drawing group is nearly 18 years old!  Possibly the oldest continually-operating life drawing group in South Jersey!  Congrats to all who have kept it going!

See you Thursday a week!

Happymeedium
