Event description

Description

A Sketch Crawl is like a photo walk only slower. This one should appeal to both photographers and sketch artist, Bring a camera (smart phone is fine) and a sketch pad (smaller is better eg A4 – A5 but whatever size you prefer).

This is three sets of walks, with refreshment and social breaks between stages. You are free to come for one part or all three. The main theme is still based on seeing but borrows from the thoughts and art of David Hockney in his recent “a bigger picture” documentary, book and Exhibitions (eg David Hockney Current at NGV 2016/2017). Learn how seeing will to help collect better reference material for artwork and/or pull together a series to tell a photographic story.

10:30 AM Walk 1Seeing the Detail. Imagine you are an eighteenth century scientist/artist exploring the new worlds and recording details of plants and birds along the way, to send back to Joseph Banks or Charles Darwin. Alternatively look for a simple subject or pattern and make a series of photos or sketches (sur le motif) that tell a visual story

Lunch at mga cafe, Visit the monash gallery of art and/or play a fun memory sketch game and puzzle over multiframe mosaics.

1:30 PM Walk 2Seeing Horizontally, going wider more than one Aspect/Frame, thinking about collecting a series of images to provide better reference, story telling or multi framed collage. Starts outside Madelines Cafe.

3:00 PM Afternoon Tea/Coffee at Madelines

4:00 PM Walk 3Looking Vertically, to a grander bigger Picture, looking at some of the taller trees and vista of the original Jell’s family farm.

6:00 PM Dinner at the Wheeler’s (Wheeler Hill Pub with one of the best late afternoon vistas in Melbourne).

“The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you're an artist”
David Hockney
