Drawing Your Story
Maximise your creative potential by drawing on the wealth of your imagination and memory to form your own unique stories. In this workshop Andrew will take you through a process of visualisation exercises to create imaginative compositions of your own. Working with charcoal, you will also develop technical skill that will enhance your imagery through a greater understanding of line and tone study.
His teaching and drawing span a period of 35 years in Australia, the United Kingdom and USA. He has been a finalist in the major drawing prizes in Australia including a seven times finalist in the Dobell.
Andrew will demonstrate ways to look inwards for a more personal story by using poetry, text, music and song as starting points. It is the commitment to drawing that forms the core of ones art practice.
"Andrew's ability to put traditional approaches aside, allows a freer and more individual way of seeing and thinking which is totally liberating. Couple this with Andrew's positive attitude, his passion for drawing and his ability to impart knowledge and you have a learning experience that will stay with you and continue to benefit long after the end of the course." - Graeme Nichols, Sturt Summer School.

Masterclass - Connected to the Landscape
This workshop is designed for artists interested in landscape, both painting and drawing and for those involved with a conversation about the nature of art making and different approaches to the Australian environment. It is intended as a master class for those wishing to develop their visual language and their own particular thinking about the genre of landscape painting.
It will offer the privilege of dedicated time in a place of creative fertility, time to work, to contemplate, uninterrupted in a landscape, where there is an opportunity for reflection and exploration away from normal habits and conventions.
There will be a work done en situ as well as in the studio, ranging from the most basic ‘drawing and painting from the source’ exercises, to realising visual ideas and concepts on a larger, more resolved scale. Study material will be sourced directly from the surrounding environment to be then used in an experimental process that is both instinctive as well as rigorously skill based, so that the sensibilities and engagement of the creative experimentation achieve a unique interpretation for each individual student to then pursue with further confidence.
Jo has been an artist in residence, guest lecturer and has taught masterclasses at many public and regional galleries. Her work is included in collections both nationally and internationally. This celebrated artitst is represented by Tim Olsen Gallery, Sydney and MARS in Melbourne.
