This January, join contemporary artist Genevieve Swifte at the Gorman Arts Centre in Canberra for an intensive summer drawing experience.

Come and experience an immersive environment for drawing, with an installation of inspiring objects – from drapery to bones, butterflies and geometric solids.

Informed by her PhD research and 20 years experience as a practicing artist, Genevieve facilitates guided drawing exercises, teaches perspective and foreshortening, and demonstrates a wide range of drawing techniques and media. Participants have the opportunity to partake in group activities, explore personal projects and receive expert feedback. The workshop will support you to develop fine motor and perceptual skills, approaches to mark making, value and colour theory, and the depiction of forms in space.

You will learn to:

  • 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.​​​​​​​​​​

Welcoming young artists from thirteen years of age, creative professionals, complete beginners and people with all levels of ability, you are invited to enrol for one, two, or all three days of the workshop.
