Drawing is Ultimately
A State of Grace
Classes and Workshops
|Ron Curran’s ‘dynamic drawing’ classes and workshops have become an established part of Byron Bay’s cultural landscape. They have now been running for 20 years successfully in Byron Bay, Northern NSW and Queensland, including at the Woodford Folk Festival. Ron spent two years in Melbourne between 2008 and 2010 which established ‘dynamic drawing’ as the most successful and popularly attended class in the city, with three full classes a week as well as conducting numerous workshops, schools and corporate groups. In addition, a major exhibition was held in Dec 09/Jan 10 at the high profile Brunswick Street Gallery in the arts hub of Fitzroy that included over 200 works from over 60 participants from the drawing classes in both Melbourne and Byron Bay. Since his return, the classes have re-established both in Byron Bay and Mullumbimby and are attracting record numbers of participants from all over Australia and overseas, and is more popular than at any other time – it has become the major drawing ‘hub’ and represents the cutting edge of creative action in the Byron Bay area. In the times in which we live, more and more people are choosing to engage in the search for both their own identity and the nourishment of their creative spirit.|
|The classes are a forum for looking at the notion of language and what that implies. Drawing sessions become an information gathering exercise, an experiment, where the whole idea of what it means to draw is looked at.Check out the you tube clip about Dynamic Drawing below…|
|Art is about inspiration. It’s about recovering and nurturing your spirit. The whole history of culture and what’s been described loosely as art history has been about individuals, not institutions. How the individual has returned to themselves and reclaimed their experience as their own rather than have it represented to them simply by external imagery and structures – eg. mainstream media, tradition or the academy which, in fact, often stifles new and emergent signatures and genres.|
