Workshop Focus:

Taking inspiration from 20th century European masters and contemporary Australian artists we will ‘take a line for a walk’ by firstly exploring continuous line drawing and pattern making, then using colour to develop our drawings into ‘vignettes’ scenes from our world, building towards the creation of an illustrated concertina artist’s book. In each session students will make exploratory work, and finished artworks to take home.

Session 1J: This week we will ‘take a line for a walk’, exploring continuous line drawing and the possibilities of pattern making. As New Zealand artist Len Lye said about developing his doodling style “Psychologists have found that doodling stimulates the mind.”

Session 2J: Drawing inspiration from master artist and educator Paul Klee, we will explore line work and colour, to create little stories about our world. Paul Klee has an interesting philosophical and aesthetic approach which informs his playful line work and use of colour e.g. 'The Gifted Boy' by Paul Klee, 1934.

Session 3J: This week we will be exploring different media, inspired by contemporary collage artists (e.g. Hollie Chastain and William Kentridge) to incorporate found images, colours and shapes with our drawings. The aim is to create ‘vignettes’, little scenes from our world

Session 4J: Sessions 1 to 3 have explored line, colour, collage and scene. Today we incorporate all of these new skills and techniques to create an illustrated artist’s book in a concertina (folding) format. Examples of artists’ books will be shown in class. The book is a chance for students to create a narrative or scene from their own experience, to ‘sketch their world’.

Intermediate and Senior Workshop (8-16 yr)

Sarah will be presenting a series of 4 sessions looking at jewellery and sculpture using the medium of wire. This will both challenge the students fine motor skills and creativity as they work with the medium.

Session 1I/S: Introduction to Jewellery Making. This session will start with an exploration of what is our field of art for the term given that jewellery is one of the oldest types of archaeological artefacts. From the hands on perspective students will be introduced to sculpture and jewellery wire-working skills, completing samples by learning about different pliers and how to use them, cutting, filing, annealing and forging wire to give different results. We will share successes and mistakes with the class working together to expand knowledge and skills and work toward creating a piece such as a name Fibula Brooch.

Session 2I/S: Building on the Basics. Using our new skills we will design and produce a decorative name fibula brooch working on being creative and precise and introduce finishing techniques. I will introduce ideas of conceptual jewellery, kinetics, different materials and metals, findings and also visual conventions such as shape and form.

Session 3I/S: Kinetic Sculptures. Alexander Calder. Calder an influential 20th century sculptor and artisit who we will investigate and then pay homage to with hands on work that looks to expand the use of the wire medium.

Session 4I/S: Jewellery and Sculpture Workshop. This session will allow the students to take the skills from the first three sessions and develop there own design and product be it a sculpture, mobile, or piece of jewellery. It will be assumed that participants have attended at least 2 of the prior sessions.
