One Day Masterclass in Drawing with Arno Kramer at The Courthouse Gallery and Studios, Co. Clare

Professional working artists, with a focus on drawing in their oeuvre, are invited to apply for a one day masterclass with Dutch artist and curator Arno Kramer, at The Courthouse Gallery in Ennistymon, Co Clare.

The objective of offering this masterclass in drawing is to focus on already existing works from the participating artists. Kramer asks that each artist bring at least 10 recent drawings, which can form the beginning of critical debate during the day. Critique will be offered on the works, as well as suggestions on how to continue making drawings from a new and interesting perspective. It does not matter what the specific content of the drawings is. Every subject or object as a starting point for work is welcome. The main concern is that the drawing has an autonomous quality and is an original piece of art, not a preparatory sketch for a painting or sculpture. Kramer notes, β€œThe autonomous nature of development in drawing is nearly a new phenomenon. You can think about it not only in content, but also in several techniques, collages and even in the size of the works. From this perspective it could also be interesting to talk about representation and presentation of drawings, as well as about research and reflection in general.”
