Look Club is a month-long observational drawing event hosted by The Cedars Union in partnership with Dallas Heritage Village. Each session, held at Dallas Heritage Village on Saturdays in October from 11am to 2pm, will focus on a different subject accompanied by a short talk from a local artist who utilizes that subject in their practice.
October 17th’s event will focus on figure drawing and feature Danielle Georgiou, artist, choreographer, and founder of Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, or DGDG. The talk will start the event, followed by 2 hours of open figure drawing with DGDG performers posing. Participants should bring any drawing supplies they’d like to use in addition to a chair, blanket, or drawing board. There will be no formal instruction, but all levels are welcome to exercise observational skills while enjoying the act of concentration through drawing. Outside food and drink is allowed.
The program will close with a 1:30 DGDG performance, Under/Foot. The new, site-specific performance responds to the historic space and its overlapping narrative with landscape and human interaction. To learn more about the performance, please visit https://www.dgdgdancegroup.com/
