WINTER SCHOOL HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS

BASIC LIFE DRAWING

Inspired by the 2017 Archibald Prize this will introduce students to drawing from life.  Education Officer, Sally O'Neill will demonstrate drawing techniques to achieve proportion and perspective.  Students will be taking turns to act as model for the group and will pose for a variety of short and long standing and sitting poses whilst building their confidence and skills in drawing.

WHEN:  Tuesdays 10 and/or 17 July 2018

AGE:  8 and over. 

TIME: 10 - 11 noon 

COST:  $15 for one session or $20 for the two sessions

 

ME IN THE MASK

How important is being able to see someone's face in recognising them?  The group will take a look through the 2017 Archibald Prize and discuss notions of appearance and identity before heading into the workshop.  Using painting, drawing and collage the children will create a mask.  Using photography and video the children will document their new characters in a performance based activity.

WHEN: Thursday 19 July 2018

AGE:  6 years and older

TIME:  10 - 12 noon
