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, 2018

Monday 8th October –  Friday 12th October



 


SPRING 2018 PROGRAM

SMALL Wonders

Snails, Scale & Urban trails … in SMALL Wonders we’ll be drawing snippets of our Urban landscape from a very tiny point of view. BIG will be SMALL and SMALL will be BIG as we shrink to the floor of the city, imagine & draw some gorgeous compositions from life in the S.L.O.W lane!

(Monday 8th October 10:00-4:00)

Scrambled Eggs

Did you know that a Quail lays eggs whose markings mirror the unique patterns on her feathers? Armed with this little bit of folklore and buoyed on by the season of nesting we’ll be creating a lovely drawing book of Scrambled Eggs. Think of the infinite variety of patterns in Nature and a myriad of mediums and you’ll be left asking “what’s inside THAT egg?”

(Tuesday 9th October 10:00-4:00)

The Brilliance of Bees

Join the swarm on a drawing journey with the brilliant Bee as our bumbling guide & get to know a little bit about the amazing social lives, habits & habitats of these wondrous creatures. Using a bevy of techniques and a bunch of mediums we’ll be busily buzzing all day as we bring into bee-ing a beautiful drawing of Bees.

(Wednesday 10th October 10:00-4:00)

Animal Calling Cards

In a time before telephones & texting everyone who was anyone had a set of Calling Cards - these little cards let friends, acquaintances & even strangers know you had paid them a visit. With a nod to this tradition of old and a twist involving the entire Animal Kingdom, we’ll be drawing our very own series of Calling Cards to take home, hand out or hoard :)

(Thursday 11th October 10:00-4:00)

The Nature of Colour

Using the subtle hues of nature & inspired by the emerging blooms of Spring, come spend the day exploring & creating your very own 3D Drawing Sculpture of Colour. We’ll be looking at & layering dyes made with everything from onion skins to avocado seeds. You’ll be amazed at the beautiful Colours that Mother Nature (with a little help from you) can create.
