Jumping between Disciplines

Presented by Jonathan Pisano

(3 Hours)

Working directly from nature without the aid of technology is quite rare amongst contemporary image makers. The filter, of say, a computer screen when considered can bring about important questions that can help transform a piece for the better. Consider the historical context of that particular discipline and observe how it functions optically.

Using a still found image as a starting point, attendees will be asked to isolate moments and produce a 2-dimensional sketch. The sketch will then be transformed 3 dimensionally and finally converted once more into a final finished 2D piece.

Workshop duration: 15m Introduction

30m Sketch

1h Sculpt

1h15m Final 2D piece
