"Every creative act implies a new innocence of the free perception of cataract of received ideas. Arthur Koestler

Course objectives:

The workshop proposes to open up plastic and graphic creation by exploring the imaginary of the body in its interior medium, the basis of the expression of form.

Various scenarios will be offered aimed at developing the lines of force of the deep body, in their extreme points of expression and / or movement.

The subjects approached will include, through scenographies, inanimate objects (still life), natural elements (landscapes), built elements and their integration (architecture), the human body, immobile or in action, and all other proposals likely to to develop learning.

Scenographies, indoor and natural discoveries will promote plastic creation in all its forms: work on easels, on the ground, black and white, colors, all formats combined.

Participants will enjoy complete freedom both in the proposed scenography and body positioning approaches and in the choice of graphic and pictorial techniques, the main thing being to lead a personal project while benefiting from the energy of the group.

Concrete links with the shooting courses (photos and moving images) as well as music and improvisation) will be offered in order to promote the emergence of a collective creation.
