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


AUTUMN, 2018

Monday 16th April –  Friday 20th April



 


AUTUMN 2018 PROGRAM

Where The Wind Leads

Set sail with us for the day as we navigate the blustery Autumn breeze in Where the Wind Leads. We’ll be using Ink and graphite to create a layered drawing of the movement of wind through trees and leaves then making & drawing our own little seed pod & leaf boats, in a lovely drawing celebration of the season of Autumn.

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

A-Mazing Microbats

Put on your Chiropterologist’s hat and join us to get to know a little more about the amazing nocturnal world of the tiny Microbats that inhabit the night skies of Sydney. We’ll draw & explore their features, the foods they feast on & the places they call home (including the fabulous bat maze structures of the Addison Road Habitat Tree). We think you’ll think that Microbats are A - Mazing!

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

Face Makers

Join us to look at the myriad of methods artists have used throughout history to represent the human face. In Face Makers we’ll create a series of facial feature blocks - noses, eyes, mouths & ears then arrange & rearrange, shuffle, swap & redraw them to create a beautiful little gallery of fabulous made up faces!

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

Time Capsules: A little book of seeds

In Time Capsules we’ll be exploring and drawing the beautiful shapes, textured exteriors & interiors of Seeds & Pods. We’ll create our own papery seeds, entomb some little hidden messages to our future selves and ponder the whimsical & wonderful nature of these tiny time capsules of life.

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

WORD UP! Illustrated Idioms

We are hoping it won’t be raining cats and dogs for Word Up! but if it is, we’ll be as snug as a bug in a rug in the Stirrup Gallery drawing the day away & conjuring on paper the crazy images that come to mind when people use those funny phrases called Idioms. We’ll be tickled pink if you join us, we think Word Up! is gonna be the bees knees.
