Drawing Workshop with John Wolseley

Prolific and celebrated, John Wolseley has travelled and painted all over this continent to discover how we dwell and move within our landscape.

Explore the fascinating bush environment of Noosa's hinterland, with John describing different ways of depicting plant and tree forms, animal tracks, bird flight, song patterns, geological formations and other phenomena. Experience a process of discovery and recording the natural world that will make up your finished work. This workshop is applicable to a range of levels, from beginners to more experienced artists.

Patterns of Place: a workshop with Kim Mahood

As artist and writer, through her relationship with Australia's desert, Kim Mahood chose art which portrays the country.

Explore the underlying rhythms and patterns of our landscape with Kim in a walking, writing, drawing workshop, incorporating traditional drawing conventions and experimental processes.

Looking at the elements in nature, Kim gives instruction in formal aspects of composition, tone and structure as well as experimental mark-making techniques. You will be creating several experimental studies before embarking on expanded drawings.
