Shapes and Shadows – Drawing and photography
We will begin this workshop by looking at the our current drawing exhibition the Paul Guest Prize. Participants will then move to the Gallery art space and, using found objects, create some interesting temporary sculptures. These constructions along with light will then be used as a basis for shadow drawings and photography using ipads and image software.

Australian fashion designer Toni Maticevski works with lots of fabulous fabrics. Participants in this workshop will first visit Toni’s exhibition in the Gallery and then move to the Gallery art space to make some collaged bags using fabric direct from Toni’s workshop. These bags will be as individual as each participant and will feature cut, collaged and sewn fabric along with an assortment of other great textile items.

Look at me – Selfies with props, pens and ipads
This workshop is inspired by the fantastic drawing exhibition the Paul Guest Prize now on at the Gallery. In the exhibition we will look together at the different way artists have approached drawing the face and the figure. Participants will then have the chance to use some props to dress them-selves up, and take some ipad selfies. Using these images participants will experiment with different drawing materials and ways of drawing a self-portrait.
