Drawing Fundamentals - Presented by Andy Quilty

  • Rockingham Arts Centre, 11 Kent Street, Rockingham
  • Sunday 19 January
  • 1pm–5pm

This workshop is full.

The workshop will focus on the notion of drawing as a process of discovery. You will develop important skills, employing experimental methodologies and risk taking, introducing the notion of "happy accidents" as fundamental to the process of making art. Building confidence as well as technical ability, you will gain the ability to take a more intuitive and exploratory approach to your work.
