TIME FOR DRAWING 6 December 2017
Arthur Boyd’s Riversdale Property NSW – 2014
The 3-day drawing weekend at Arthur Boyd’s Riversdale property at Bundanon on the beautiful Shoalhaven River in NSW was facilitated by Sydney architect and artist, Rena Czaplinska-Archer and Bodyweather performer, Victoria Hunt in July 2014. Thirteen creatives with diverse backgrounds enjoyed explorative creative thinking, integrating sketching, mindfulness, movement and sensory awareness. Early morning movement sessions in the landscape relaxed the mind, eye and body in preparation for drawing the moving figure and translating emotions on paper in charcoal, pen and ink. Walking and drawing in the landscape before dinner was time for getting in touch with our natural creative abilities followed by meaningful discussions at the communal dining table.
