Drawing and meditation class

When

Tuesday 27 June 2023 from 11am to 12:30pm

Cost

Concession: $4.70

This is a relaxing drawing workshop that encourages the enjoyment of drawing but also teaches foundation drawing techniques. This workshop will be led by Emmanuel Asante from the Refugee Art Project. 

Emmanuel will teach how to draw and paint fun African symbols and designs that will encourage the habit of sketching and painting. The class incorporates mindfulness exercises to create a stress-free learning environment.

We will be going through various beginner drawing exercises week by week and incorporating mindfulness exercises to create a stress-free learning environment.

Participants will have the opportunity to paint a square to contribute to a collaborative refugee art canvas during Refugee Week. You’re also invited to join the event - An African Night on Wednesday 21 June as part of our Refugee Week celebrations

The aim of this course is to encourage you to draw by giving you basic drawing techniques.

No experience is necessary. We welcome beginner artists and artists who want to get back into drawing and light painting for fun. And also artists who want to build their fundamental drawing skills.

Materials: blank paper and pens will be provided. Bring your own sketchbook (if you have one) and favourite drawing materials as we will be building a sketchbook throughout the class.

We aim to deliver inclusive and accessible events. If you have any particular access or communication needs, please contact Bishop, Community Services Worker, on 02 9265 9133. Spots are limited, class size is small.
