We are looking for your ideas to make Manchester a better place to live, work and play
Pop up art gym - after work/lunchtime, with perspective to becoming regular feature and rent a room for regular workshops. Up to ten easels with paints, brushes and lots of things to draw/paint. you work out every day, but what about your eye? everybody can click on FB, how about creating unique experience, developing your eye and brain with help of Betty Edwards technique, creating a sketch in your lunchtime or after work?... How long does it take? from 10 minutes to an hour. What level you should have in drawing? Any level, if you can write you can draw. You have to just to have courage to try something new. If you based in city centre, if you work in Spinningfields or Deansgate area - try it today!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Lots of people are trapped in "dopamine fuelled feedback loop", we receive 90 % of information through eyes, but we neglect our eye's "fitness" and instead of beauty of 3d natural objects we see... well, how many times you liked today babies photos, cute kittens pics or tantalising pics of ocean? yep, 1000 times - instead of seeing - and expressing what you see - real beauty of this world. To reverse the process you have to take control of what you see, and drawing/painting is an old and trusted method for it, you dont need special abilities, if you have eyes and can write - with Betty Edwards' and other techniques its proven that you can paint. Join us and start WORKOUT FOR YOUR EYE AND BRAIN. Un-glue your eyes from the screen, see instead - faces, landscapes, sky and flowers. ( workshops are short and aim at busy people at lunch breaks and after work)
