Tutored live-motion drawing workshop

Thursday 7th September 7-9pm £20 per person

Learn to capture the art of movement at Bristol’s first tutored live-motion drawing workshop. Guided by live-motion artist, Sachin Babbar (SAB), the sessions cover fundamental techniques such as gesture drawing, form and dynamic composition to help you translate the energy and vitality of dance onto paper.

An array of local talented dancers from varied disciplines (Contact Improvisation, Contemporary, Ballet etc.) will feature as the subject of these workshops. They will act out still poses and dance sequences specially curated to introduce you  to this art form.

All skill levels welcomed and encouraged. We will explore the power of motion in a relaxed and supportive environment. Workshops will be held at HOURS gallery and event space in central Bristol.

Our first workshop model is local dancer Maria Martinez.

Her practice is a reflection of her unique journey. Starting to dance at 18, her background in music and passion for visual arts influence her style. Unlike traditional training, Maria’s practice focuses on her body’s feelings and cues rather than conforming to set techniques. It’s an intuitive and authentic approach, allowing her to explore movement with freedom and self-awareness. She connects deeply with her body, using it as an instrument to express rhythm and flow – a reflection of her inner world – a captivating journey of self-discovery.
