Event description

Description

Eye to Hand is an observational drawing course taught by contemporary artist Genevieve Swifte at the Ainslie Arts Centre in Braddon, Canberra ACT.


The workshop runs for six weeks on either:

Sunday Afternoons 2 – 4pm from the 19th of May
Tuesday Evenings 6 – 8pm from the 21st of May




What to expect

The workshop tends to be a wonderful mix of beginners, talented teens and experienced artists. The classes are guided and flexible to accommodate all abilities and sensibilities. We develop fine motor and perceptual skills, approaches to mark making, colour theory, tone and the depiction of forms in space. We draw a wide variety of objects chosen for the transferable principals they convey and look closely at the work of a particular artist in the last two weeks of the course.


All of the exercises are carefully researched and are designed to:

• Help you see the world around you with greater clarity.

• Translate what you see from three dimensions into two.

• Heighten the sensitivity and dexterity of your hand, wrist and arm.


Classes run in six-week blocks with each course covering new ground, allowing participants to begin at the beginning of any term and even return throughout the year. The workshop welcomes young artists from thirteen years of age, creative professionals, complete beginners and people with all levels of ability. Members of the community who have not had the opportunity to engage in formal art training are especially welcome to attend.


*Select your enrolment in either Sunday Afternoons or Tuesday Evenings when you purchase your ticket.
