Creative Drawing – Allegories of Modernism
A series of drawing classes by internationally acclaimed tutor Linda Sabbage
This intensive and academic six-week drawing course is an introduction to alternative drawing methods and techniques using modernist artists to focus and develop each student’s individual creativity. Mediums will include wax, dyes, inks oils, charcoal, compressed pastels, erasers, papers, strings, natural materials as well as traditional drawing tools such as pencils and pens.
This class is suitable for anyone over 16 with a passion for art, regardless of ability. It will be a thrilling, liberating and exciting experience firmly rooted in Modernism, allowing each student to self-express. The course runs for 6 weeks from Sunday 21st May and can be taken either as a whole course, or as single classes.
Class 1 – Paul Klee – Taking a line for a walk
Paul Klee’s work is difficult to classify. He is variously associated with expressionism, cubism, futurism, surrealism and abstraction. He used geometric forms as well as letters, numbers and arrows, in combination with figures of animals and people. In this class you will look at the line, ‘taking it for a walk’, seeing where it goes and what shapes and forms you might create. This class will be a discovery of your own lines, patterns and formation in a fun and upbeat session.
Sunday 21st May, 10.00am – 1.00pm
$225 for course or $50 per class. Combine the class with the Playing with Paint class on the same day and pay just $75 for the two.
