So you think you can’t draw? Bollocks. Drawing is one of our earliest and most direct forms of creative expression. So why do most find it so hard or that it requires some mystical talent? It’s all in your head. Literally. Through exercises in seeing and mark-making, this class focuses on overcoming typical problems and clichés in seeing and drawing. This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn how to better translate what they see in 3D to 2D, with an emphasis on the importance of the act of drawing as a creative imperative.
Romeo Alaeff received his Master of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Romeo Alaeff’s work “blurs the boundaries between icon and art, funny and serious, traditional and experimental, public and private.” He has exhibited internationally in major galleries and museums including the Lyon Biennale, Artists Space, MACBA, and the Dallas Museum of Art. Alaeff has been a guest artist, critic and teacher at institutions such as the Rhode Island School of Design, Brown University, Pratt, and Parsons/The New School.

JUNE WORKSHOP IN LONDON:

Instructors: David Blamey & Tom White

Cost: GBP 250.00 per person
This course provides an induction to a range of sonic art forms for artists and designers across the fields of music, theatre, film, video, design and visual art. Focus is on the development of work on location in London, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, and the context of a number of contemporary methods: performance; gallery installation; broadcast; podcast; production and publishing. Emphasis will be placed on experimentation and adventure. You will be introduced to field recording, sampling and collage techniques before digitally mixing, editing and arranging a track of your own work, then mastering it for publication online.
Several kinds of artist and designer would thrive on this course: those who have a strong background in a single discipline and would value the learning opportunity that interdisciplinary environments provide; those whose studio practice fuses disciplines; those wanting to work with sound for the first time; and those who want to invigorate their practice with a period exploration with sound.
David Blamey is a London-based Artist, proprietor of independent publishing imprint Open Editions and an occasional curator and writer. In addition to gallery installations, his work embraces photography, the written word, sculpture and sound. He is an educator of repute, having taught at the Royal College of Art in London for many years. His sound work has been performed/exhibited at numerous galleries worldwide, including the Royal Academy of Arts and Victoria & Albert Museum in London, MKG in Milton Keynes and Electric Spring in Huddersfield. His edited books include, Here, There, Elsewhere: Dialogues On Location and Mobility (2002) and Living Pictures: Perspectives On the Film Poster in India (2005).
Tom White is a London-based Artist whose work traverses multi-media platforms including sound, experimental film and video, installation and live performance. Recent projects include commissions for LUX Moving image, My Dance The Skull, MK Gallery & Spill Festival of Performance. He has taught at the South London Gallery; Srishti School of Art & Design, Bangalore India; Milton Keynes Gallery; and Central Saint Martins, London.

What are Workshops with Artists?
Workshops with artists are short-term workshops, from a weekend, to a week, 10 days, or 2 months. Professional artists are invited to work with students, who sign up and apply to study specifically with them. These workshops are not typical courses, in that you are invited, as an artist’s assistant might, to work in their studios or in and around NYC, LA, or Berlin, on a specific project related to their work or to one that they assign for the workshop. Each artist can create a different proposal for the workshops and we will list these workshops depending on the availability and interest of the working artists. This allows for great access to work with these artists and a rare opportunity. Space is limited and the artists choose to accept the group of whom has applied for their artist workshop.
