The Big Draw 'Face off' selfie workshop October 2017

City Lit and The Big Draw present 'Face-off' - an animated series of selfies.

Last month, City Lit held experimental animation workshops for the Big Draw festival 2017 with artist Litza Jansz. Participants were photographed and their image was projected onto a wall. Each participant made a speed tracing, exploring different mark making techniques with charcoal. The drawings were captured in stop motion. The event attracted an eclectic mix of drawing aficionados and complete beginners. Everyone got to make their mark in this empowering and fun filled workshop where diversity was celebrated and encouraged.
