Marwen + Al Raby High School Workshop Installation

Marwen and Al Raby workshop:Life drawing in the Desert House
Saturday, August 1, 2015 to Tuesday, December 1, 2015
The Marwen + Al Raby High School Workshop installation is a documentation and display of the botanic drawing workshop led by Marwen, with students from Al Raby High School. The workshop was held at the Garfield Park Conservatory in June 2015, and began with life drawing in the exhibits, followed by color and paint techniques in a public meeting space. 
The artworks from the workshop were reproduced on 30’ H transparent panels that hover above the Children’s Garden. The panels display collaged reproductions of the students’ interpretations of the Conservatory’s collection. The result is delicate central screen nestled within the plantlife, richly layered with bold color, light and shape inspired by the natural world.
