ACTION: LEARN THE ART OF COMBAT DRAWING
A special Collaborative Combative Drawing workshop will be held as part of Resistance Training, an exhibition and group of events curated by Glen Helfand offering a bolstering sense of community in the midst of a tumultuous political era. Artist and Self-Defense instructor Melissa Wyman invites participants to explore both the cooperative and combative sides of their fields by going head to head in the creation of large-scale works on paper. Participants must push, pull, escape or outwit each other in order to complete a single drawing or representation of their personal power statement, symbol or design. Melissa will coach participants in effective and relevant martial art/self-defense techniques for outmaneuvering the other participants and getting their drawing down on paper. The process will be frustrating yet exhilarating, and result in surprisingly dynamic, collaborative works.Want to hear about more events and updates? Sign up for our newsletter below!
