Experimental drawing with botanical subject matter 

Explore experimental and expressive drawing techniques with botanical subjects!

This fun, social class will provide opportunities for students to loosen up, discover new approaches, and increase drawing confidence. We will explore a range of exercises designed to remove the pressure of ‘getting it right’, while enhancing and developing drawing skills.

Catering for students of all skill levels, this workshop will provide a balance of technique, self-expression and experimentation.Students will extend their drawing language through the discovery of mark making, line, negative space, tone, texture, and composition, using mixed media.

No pre-requisites required, just an enthusiasm for drawing!

* Students can select, bring, and share their botanical subject matter. For example interesting leaves, gumnuts, banksias,sticks (these will also be provided).

* Exercises are designed for students to loosen up, take risks, explore and discover new approaches to drawing, and increase drawing confidence.

 Course Outcomes:

* Increased confidence in drawing
