When

Every day, 10am to 12pm Wednesday 29 September to Friday 1 October

These workshops will teach students how to develop their own artist sketchbook. The aim is to teach students how to sketch from the world around them, build process drawings, develop their ideas and give them the confidence to keep drawing at home once they’ve left the art classroom. Each day is a different focus to suit a range of drawing styles and themes.

Day 1 focus: observational sketching and drawing. Using various still life objects for inspiration, learn how to build these forms and develop your skills in proportion, tone, form and composition.

Day 2 focus: people and places. In this workshop you will learn how to observe people sitting, working and making. Develop your skills in proportion of the moving figure and building facial features.

Day 3 focus: natural landscapes. Learn how to paint real and imagined landscape scenes of water using inks and washes. Use colour expressively to create moody and atmospheric landscape drawings and paintings.

Rachel’s online studio course is taught with Zoom and takes advantage of the full range of tools that this program offers. She is present in the online studio for the whole session and she responds directly to students’ questions with live demonstrations and discussions. We are also using Padlet in this course, Padlet is a web application that allows users to post information and images on a digital wall.

If you are unfamiliar with the Zoom program, some tutorial assistance is available prior to the commencement of the first session to ensure you can join in with ease and get to know the online learning environment. You will be guided in Padlet usage by your Lecturer and you can get additional tutorial help from NAS.

Class sizes are limited to a maximum of twelve students and the sessions are not recorded.
