We design all our Workshops keeping class sizes small to easily accommodate different capabilities. Collaboration and group discussion are a very important part of our Workshop structure and each participant is treated as an important contributor to each creative process. We are all (mostly) social creatures and age seems no barrier to the sharing of common interests & often innovative interactions that transpire throughout our workshops.

Drawing is any mark deliberately made onto a surface....

SCHOOL HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS


WINTER, 2018

Monday 16th July –  Friday 20th July



 


WINTER 2018 PROGRAM

POLAR EXPLORERS- 2nd Expedition (includes penguins!)

Pack your puffer jacket & sail with us on our 2nd expedition to explore the Icy beauty of Antarctica. In true Winter fashion we’ll be creating a very cool Polar Pinwheel drawing … navigating our way through Ice shelves, past migrating whales & floating Inky Icebergs aboard a bright red Ice breaker. Keep your eyes peeled cause this time round there will be penguins.

(Monday 16th July 10:00-4:00)

ROCKS, CAVES & CAVERNS - A Pop-up Drawing

Calling all Troglophiles for a day of drawing the mysterious world of Caves and Caverns. We'll have our awesome collection of Crystals, Rocks and Mineral specimens to draw. We’ll replicate the towering structures of Stalactites and the beautifully detailed textures of Fossils Floors and create a spectacular subterranean Pop-up drawing … of course we think drawing Caves & Caverns 'Rocks'!

(Tuesday 17th July 10:00-4:00)

CARBON COPY - Inky Faces

In Inky Faces we’ll be looking closely at the beautiful Fingerprint Portraits of Chuck Close. We will wile away the morning exploring Ink & mark making, using various tools to create a multitude of textural tones. Then we’ll let our fingers do the drawing (a la Chuck) ripping, sorting & layering until our Inky Portraits emerge.

(Wednesday 18th July 10:00-4:00)

CHOP IT, DRAW IT, EAT IT! Winter Edition

Drawing fruit can be well … a little bit ho-hum but when you get to chop it in half, draw it AND eat it afterwards it becomes a whole lot more interesting! We’ll be having some hands-on fun as we compose, collage & draw (then consume) a beautiful Wintery feast inspired by the sumptuous still life paintings of Caravaggio.

(Thursday 19th July 10:00-4:00)

MORE MECHANICAL CREATURES

In More Mechanical Creatures we will once again turn the clock way back to an age before electricity (yes, such a time did exist!). Think Animal Machine Hybrids, Automatons, Robotic Creatures and throw a little bit of Clockwork Steampunk into the mix. You’ll need all your creative skills as we Design, Collage and Draw the Blueprints for some Fantastic Beasts.

(Friday 20th July 10:00-4:00)
