Sketching Movement with Curtis Holder, Suzy Willson and Fukiko Takase

‘Sketching Movement’ is a chance to reinvigorate your artistic practice and bring bold aesthetic choices into your work. Ideal for those who love drawing, life drawing and mark-making, participants will work alongside artist Curtis Holder (2024 John Ruskin Prize winner & Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2020) as well as Suzy Willson (Artistic Director, Clod Ensemble) and dancer Fukiko Takase.

The morning session will consist of technique- and skills-sharing among the group. Participants can then put the morning’s learning into practice in the afternoon session, capturing Takase’s dynamic movements on paper.

Materials will be provided by Clod Ensemble.
