Turning off the lights is a great way to entice reluctant drawers to take the plunge! It can also provide a useful warm-up for further drawing activities and help develop awareness of muscle-memory as a tool for drawing.
This post describes some ideas based on drawing in the dark, during workshops at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Devon. Artists worked alongside various groups ranging from a pupil referral unit to mainstream 6th form art students and a family drop-in day. The workshops explored and developed a multitude of practical approaches to responding to Flock Together, an exhibition of 2D paintings, drawings and video by Sara Dudman and Debbie Locke.
