Explore creative and innovative drawing processes suited to a classroom environment. Experience a variety of traditional drawing processes and media (ink, charcoals, pencils and pastels) and unconventional /contemporary/ experimental ideas and media with a focus on sharing, adapting and expanding ideas to teach drawing. There will also be an opportunity to explore and experiment with drawing as a 3-dimensional form.
Drawing experiences include: collaborative line drawing; sighting perspective; drawing the unseen/invisible (sound, vibrations, wifi, scent, textures); light tone and sighting in perspective; colour mixing and abstract pattern; performative figure drawing with ink; drawing 3d using stitching with plant fibres from the garden. The practical drawing exercises and slide presentation will provide a wide range of creative drawing possibilities linking to the visual arts Years 7-10 curriculum.
