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

The classes tend to be a wonderful mix of beginners, talented teens and experienced artists. The exercises are guided and flexible to accommodate all abilities and sensibilities. We develop fine motor and perceptual skills, approaches to mark making, value and colour theory, 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 weeks of the course.
