The Fall of the Ball - Sports Day at Pitzhanger Manor

The Fall of the Ball - Sports Day at Pitzhanger Manor   2012

This workshop celebrated the Olympic Games by making action drawings using sporting equipment and playground activities. Marks were made on large sheets of paper with chalk pastel, pencil and stickers through skipping, hula-hooping, tennis and ping-pong. The sporting equipment became drawing implements, they were covered in chalk pastel, or had pencils attached to them. The fall of the ball on the paper was documented with stickers. The result was a series of colourful abstract drawings, which were celebrated through an award ceremony. Medals hand-made out of card and ribbons were presented to the participants.
