Developing Dylan – another workshop

Performance poet Martin Daws and I did a workshop for LIterature Wales with excluded pupils.

They were great and worked really hard for us at generating poetry in response to a line from Dylan Thomas, drawing to music by Busnoys and then making both a book and a video. See the video here.

Maria Hayes draws Busnoys on iPad

See my new video of drawings made on an iPad live in response to Busnoys performing on my Artworks page.

The drawings were projected on a screen above the musicians as they played.

Cerebellium 2014

Cerebellium 2014 was suported by Pontio, University of Bangor and Arts Council of Wales.

Cerebellium 2014 was an immersive theatre experience and I painted live while Professor Guillaume Thierry, playing Professor Kurtz, explained the workings of his ‘brain in the vat’.

The brain in the vat, communicating through music to the scientists and friends. The infinity loop connects the mind consciousness to the brain matter.

Presentation at Drawing in the University Today, International Drawing Conference, Porto.

I was invited to present my paper Learning to Dance on the Page as part of the International Drawing Conference in Porto, Portugal on 1 June 2013. The two day conference had Drawing in the University Today as its theme. The conference was a great success with many intriguing projects and papers delivered over the packed two day programme. The papers will be published in September. I will post more details when I have them. In the meantime, if anyone requires a copy of my presentation and paper, please do not hesitate to ask.

I have just received a letter to tell me that I have been nominated to receive one of the annual Action for Children’s Arts Members’ Awards in recognition of the contribution my work makes to the enrichment of children’s lives through the arts.

The ceremony will be held at BAFTA, Piccadilly, London on 20th October 2012.

I am thrilled and honoured to have been chosen for this award. Thank you to all the children who have worked with me over the years, this is for you, too.
