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!
