As a professional musician, one spends hours exploring feelings and emotions with one goal, communicating them without being able to use anything other than a particular instrument. Visual art does much the same. By understanding the means music uses to express ideas and emotions, this workshop hopes to stimulate your sense of hearing and help you connect with your drawing to a deeper level.
Lorena Cantó will lead the workshop, with Luci Eyers assisting. Participants will work with specifically designed drawing tasks throughout the day, drawing in response to music and musical techniques including: structure, harmony, texture, melody and rhythm.
Lorena Cantó Woltèche is a professional classical musician and graphic designer. Born into a family of musicians, music is a theme ever present in her work. After pursuing her music education in viola at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, she now combines her active career as member of the Jubilee String Quartet and her work as a freelance graphic designer specialised for artists. Besides enjoying helping other musicians develop their visual identity, one of her greatest artistic concerns lies in finding the perfect marriage between sound and image. As a designer, Lorena enjoys exploring different kinds of media, combining illustration and photo manipulation.
