Join us for a masterclass with artist Inma Pavon to discover drawing through movement.

This masterclass invites participants to discover the rhythms and movement in artworks as a way to better understand artistic styles and practices. Through a series of innovative activities we will explore and challenge our understanding of artworks in the current exhibition Moving Spaces: Learning through the UCC art collection. Under the guidance of artist Inma Pavon, participants will adopt unique methods of interacting with artworks through movement before using these methods to create their own large scale drawings using charcoal, graphite and ink.

Inma Pavon is a contemporary artist who has trained in ballet, contemporary dance and physical education. She has performed and collaborated with artists Amanda Coogan, Danny McCarthy and John Godfrey, as part of events including Cork Midsummer Festival, Quarter Block Party and with groups such as Headway, Arts for Health and The Circus Factory.
