Jo-Anne Cox and Disability Arts Online present Defiant Journey – Make Your Mark!, Online


Price: Free


A white woman playing a black cello

Join us for a relaxed, creative workshop where Jo-Anne will play music live on her Dragon Cello and invites you to make art work as she plays. Kate Lovell will gently guide you through the riddles of Zoom-etiquette and how best to enjoy your time with the Dragon Cello through simple, clear instructions. Create your own defiant journey – you can use any art medium you wish: paints, pastels, charcoal, pencil, biro, creative writing, felt tip pens. Or you can just sit back and listen.

As the Dragon Cello tunes in to your art-making, you may wish to lead the cello with your mark-making and we will invite you to put the camera onto the art as you make and Jo-Anne will play the cello in response to the rhythm of your art making.

The workshop will last for one hour and is a relaxed environment – you can come and go as you please. Feel free to bring your children to make art with you – all are welcome.

If you wish to make art, remember to bring paper and your preferred art materials ready for the beginning of the workshop.
After the workshop, you are invited to submit art work you have created for display in an online gallery on the Disability Arts Online website – this is optional.

Recordings of the Dragon Cello will be available for a short period after the workshop ends for you to make art to in your own time if you cannot make the initial workshop.

This workshop will be BSL interpreted and live captioned. Please book tickets via the ‘book tickets’ eventbrite link below.
