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


SUMMER, 2018

Monday 15th January –  Friday 19th January



 


SUMMER 2018 PROGRAM

Summer Silhouettes

Imagine lying in the summer grass late on a lazy afternoon. Insects buzz around as everything sways in the breeze and the sun casts shimmering silhouettes as you look up from the undergrowth. Everything is larger than life as we use ink, carbon, graphite and pen to weave our way through different printing & drawing techniques to capture this serene summery scene. 

(Monday 15th January 10:00-4:00)

Tide Lines - Washed up on the Beach

Tide Lines is our drawing tribute to lazy summer days spent combing the beach. Using watercolour pencils, ink & collage – we’ll capture fragments of well-travelled shells, flotsam and jetsam, tiny balls of sand cast off by sand crabs, washed up driftwood, bright blue bluebottles and the traces of lapping lines left by the ceaseless tide.

(Tuesday 16th January 10:00-4:00)

Postcards from Impossible places

Greetings from …………..? In Postcards from Impossible places we’ll be travelling to locations that only our imaginations can take us and sending back some scenic souvenir drawings of our sightseeing adventures! Using a variety of drawing mediums and techniques we’ll take a creative look at the graphic compositions of postcards past, present (& maybe even future).

(Wednesday 17th January 10:00-4:00)

Fish ’n Chips

It’s Fish and Chips but not how you think! We’ve deconstructed this humble take away and reconstructed it in a daring day of experimental drawing. Intrigued? There will be oodles of Ink, printing, collage and a sprinkle of salty drawing science, combined to create a beautiful little folded book of Fish ’n Chips. Come and join us for some fishy fun!

(Thursday 18th January 10:00-4:00)

Peering through the Portal

With a focus on simple organic shapes found in nature and a nod to the beautiful modernist sculpture of Barbara Hepworth, we’ll be once again navigating the paper sculpture portal these holidays. Volume & voids, internal & external spaces, texture & colour, using simple techniques we’ll create our very own little drawing windows onto the world
