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


SPRING, 2017

Monday 25th September –  Friday 29th September



 


SPRING 2017 PROGRAM

INKY FACES

In Inky Faces we’ll be looking closely at the fingerprint Portraits of Chuck Close, exploring Ink & mark making and using a variety of tools & techniques, including wax resist, to create pages of textural tones. Faces will emerge through ripping, sorting and layering of our tonal studies into papery collaged portraits

(Monday 25th September 10:00-4:00)

POST ME A PICTURE

We have an awesome collection of postage stamps from the far flung reaches of the globe and we’ll be using these beautiful little images as the inspiration to create a series of envelope stories. Collage, stencils, stamping and watercolour pencils will collide in a delightful day of daydreaming and drawing.

(Tuesday 26th September 10:00-4:00)

THE HABITS OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE HABITAT TREE

Taking inspiration from Spring and the Inhabitants of the Addison Road Urban Habitat Tree we’ll be creating a drawing to celebrate the daily rituals and social lives of the birds of the Tree. Learning about the history and importance of urban habitats while drawing inside and out!

(Wednesday 27th September 10:00-4:00)

Oh Typo!….. Blackout poetry / Silhouettes / Text as Image and Image as Text / Beautiful sets of antique Letterpress blocks / A very cool collection of Lettering Stencils / Stamping / Cutting….. & creating a fold out Urban Drawing Story with some Fabulous Fonts…..(image:Artist unknown)

(Thursday 28th September 10:00-4:00)

TRACING THE LAND

We’ll be using some lovely layered processes to explore the lines of landscape, using transparencies and Sharpie pens to create an aerial map, building a drawing of colour & form with paper stickers and creating grainy graphite rubbings to mark the way. Tracing the Land is a wonderfully bright and abstract look at the patchwork colours that can be seen in a Landscape.
