Drawing The Easiest Thing
Facing the void of a blank page is daunting. Trying to bring the images from our mind to life and wanting to create a perfectly beautiful drawing can hinder our creative process. But when we were kids, we were proud of creating the most wildly inappropriate and terrifying portraits and scenes. There was no such thing as a bad drawing.
In this workshop, we will take a trip to meet our inner child, and learn to draw from them. Through the exercises, we will explore our relationship to drawing and build our confidence in even the slightest line that we draw.
Because creativity is a social construct, we will develop our own through our relationship with people attending the workshop. At the end, everyone will have created a token to remind them that drawing is the easiest thing.
Müge started practising art to understand themself, by giving form to what was going on in their mind. Documentation is always at the heart of Müge's practise, as a starting point for their creative process. Having struggled with perfectionism and the fear of creating, they wanted to create this workshop to help anyone who might be living the same struggles.
Queer Youth Art Collective (QYAC) has run workshops at London’s The Outside Project for LGBTQ young people 18-26 since August 2019. The project delivers newly commissioned workshops by LGBTQ artists and youth forums for attendees to discuss their practice and socialise. These alternate weekly on Sundays .
Our primary aims are to challenge isolation, provide free and engaging arts workshops and build skills and infrastructure for a resilient, peer-led LGBTQ arts and education culture in London and throughout the UK.
We currently run 2 groups: ONLINE on ZOOM & OFFLINE From The Outside Project’s Community centre in CENTRAL LONDON.
This workshop will include: drawing.
