Students of all standards are invited to dive into this exciting five day drawing intensive that will alternate days between drawing from a life model in our Elsternwick studio, and drawing from Old Master Artworks at the National Gallery of Victoria.
Throughout the week, students will study the language of representational art through both a practical and historical lens, while deeply investigating how to use this artistic methodology in contemporary times as a tool of self expression. You will not only learn how to improve your capacity in drawing, but you will also gain a fresh understanding of classical approaches to the challenges of drawing.
