Do you want to learn practical drawing techniques and encourage your creativity to emerge in a supportive studio environment?

Discover how to see and draw with proportion and perspective, and how to work from small studies to larger, sustained drawings. Learn about the importance of line, tone, composition and mark-making and explore the mediums of graphite, charcoal and ink.

Siena White sets projects and gives you the opportunity to draw still life scenes and work from the life model. She gives demonstrations, group exercises and one-to-one tuition and guides you in developing your own way of seeing and drawing.

Covered footwear is essential in all studio spaces on campus.

Siena White is an artist and teacher at the National Art School, also running workshops at the Art Gallery of NSW. She was the recipient of the Art Gallery of NSW Robert Le Gay Brereton Memorial Prize in 2014 for her skills in drawing. Her practice employs drawing from life and observational skills.
