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.

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

Cameron Ferguson specialises in drawing and watercolour, with over 15 years’ experience working and exhibiting in Sydney. He has taught drawing for a range of institutions, including TAFE, community colleges and high schools, and recently presented workshops at the National Art School.

Cameron has completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) at the National Art School and a Graduate Diploma in Education at the University of Technology, Sydney, and is currently completing a Master of Fine Art by Research. His research is situated within the still life genre and object-based art, involving creating a series of drawings and installations that form associations between objects, place and memory.
