The upcoming workshop day by Draw to Perform will include three bookable workshops about drawing, provided by acclaimed artists and performers. The workshops will explore alternative ways to make marks, draw and express. These workshops will present different strategies for forming a dialogue between drawing, sound, movement, process and performance.
Participants will draw live, share and discuss their outcomes and ideas. All workshops will target different groups and issues in contemporary drawing and will allow artists the opportunity to experience an art form a first hand, work with and be tutored by some of the leading artists in their field.
All workshops do not require prior drawing or performance experience.

Exploring monotyping in performance drawing context – Sharing her recent live monotyping practice, Bettina Fung will lead this two hour experimental workshop that will examine ideas of body, space and time, mark making, as well as expanding on what performance documentation could be. This workshop will involve individual and collective monotyping exercises, making prints on different scale and will enable participants to experience incorporating monotyping in performance settings. This workshop will be messy and it is recommended to come in clothes you do not mind getting messy in.
Bettina Fung creates two dimensional, performative and site specific works. Her practice explores what drawing can become and involves the performative aspect of drawing. Bettina often draws in live settings at exhibitions and festivals, hence sharing her process and allowing the work to unfold over time. Bettina’s background is in computer animation. She gained her degree in Bournemouth University (NCCA).
