The Art of Creative Drawing

  • The Beth McDonnell Gallery | On a Bike Art 602-604 High Street Kew, VIC, 3101 Australia (map)

A series of six drawing workshops led by local artist and art therapist Ed King for:

  • anyone who wants to draw, but lacks confidence or doesn't know where to start
  • people who enjoy adult colouring books and would like to expand out into drawing what is around them
  • anyone who draws already, but wants to try a fresh approach, to find different ways to make and think about drawings

The sessions start with a playful exploration of making marks on paper using ink, watercolours, pencils, and a wide range of other media. We will draw a lot in the controlled environment of the studio, but also take walks outside, to draw trees, flowers, buildings or people.

Techniques of drawing will be covered. Among others: visual measurement and comparison, using perspective, and looking at the negative space around and between whatever we are drawing
