Two day drawing workshop with Wendy Stokes.

Masterclass with Wendy Stokes
Within and Between - Walking in the space of Landscape

This two day workshop aims to interweave a variety of drawing processes and materials encouraging each participant to embrace and investigate a range of approaches to seeing and interpreting landscape in order to find their own meaning. 

The workshop participants are encouraged to approach this workshop with an open mind and explore the opportunity to experiment with a variety of drawing processes and materials rather than achieve one singular work. The emphasis shall be on the extension of one’s practice, collegial interaction, critique and fun through learning together. Wendy’s workshops are well known for sharing her depth of knowledge, experience, enthusiasm and generosity of spirit where everyone is a winner.

DAY ONE
An exploration of en plein air with each participant having the opportunity to select their range of subject matter within a nominated location along our beautiful coastline. The workshop focus shall be on an experimental approach to drawing with each participant building on their results throughout the day in sketchbooks and larger formats.

DAY TWO
An immersive opportunity for your drawings to be interpreted and developed in the Artlab offering potential for the participant to develop more sustained works on paper.

Fee inclusive of both days. Basic materials will be supplied. BYO specialised equipment. Bookings essential. 

Walking  in  the  space  of  Landscape merges  experiences  of  connection and process, both being key to engaging, knowing and understanding a site.

Whilst attending an International Cite des Arts residency in Paris in 2014, Stokes spent time exploring Claude Monet sites of the coast and the Giverny Garden. Exploring  parallels  between  these  and  Stokes' Australian  locations  the  exhibition  explores  drawing  as  a  vehicle  to  interweave  a  connection between place and memory.
