Drawing to Sculpture: Contemporary Drawing, Collage and Assemblage




Open up and get in touch with your creative process!

 You will embark on a journey through a range of drawing, collage and sculptural assemblage techniques over the day. This workshop teaches open experimentation with different materials and techniques in order to free up the creative art making process and engage in non-linear thinking. You will lean a number of different drawing techniques such as observational drawing, automatic drawing, the basics of collage and composition, ideas regarding colour, form and spontaneity and techniques to create your own playful sculpture construction.

This workshop focuses on letting go of ideas regarding working towards a preconceived outcome and will communicate an understanding of process driven artwork, the language of abstraction and the logic of using non-traditional art materials such as sticks, foam, recycled paper, thread and beads. The workshop is tailored to everyone regardless of whether you have had little or lots of art making experience!

CERES - Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, is an award winning, not-for-profit, sustainability centre located on 4.5 hectares on the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne.

It is also a thriving community, an urban farm, Australia’s largest deliverer of environmental education, an event and conference venue and a place rich with social and cultural diversity. CERES is recognised as an international leader in community and environmental practice.

Built on a decommissioned rubbish tip that was once a bluestone quarry, today CERES is a vibrant eco-oasis. 350,000 people visit CERES each year. Many more engage with us through our Sustainable Schools program which takes sustainable education into schools across the state.

CERES’ green technology displays, buildings, education and training programs and social enterprises (CERES’ Organic Market, Café, Permaculture Nursery and Fair Food organics delivery) demonstrate food security, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiencies, renewables and water conservation in action.

CERES is a model for a future with sustainability, innovation and connectedness at its heart.
