Andy Quilty Portrait Workshop
December 5, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
HARTZ is kicking of the HARTZibald Exhibition planned for March 2016 by hosting a very exciting two day workshop with dynamic and modern portrait artist Andy Quilty.
Day One: Saturday, December 5, 2015, 10 am to 3 pm
Utilizing everyday tools including ballpoint pen and texta, participants will learn to achieve a more instinctual and primal approach to drawing. The workshop will highlight the power of permanence in mark making as a means for discovery, introducing the notion of ‘happy accidents’.
By removing the option to erase aspects of a drawing, participants will learn to embrace chance, loosen up and achieve a more organic and individual visual language within their work.
The second part of the workshop will see participants employ this same organic approach utilizing charcoal and pencil whilst still focusing on the notion of drawing as an exploratory process.
Day Two: Sunday, December 6, 2015, 10 am to 3 pm
Working with water-based inks, participants will learn to take a confident and less hesitant approach to painting. The workshop will highlight the connection between drawing and painting as investigative processes, allowing the artist to connect with and reinterpret ones surrounds in a unique, organic and powerful way. Participants will also undertake studies using a combination of ink, pencil and charcoal as a means of utilizing varied approaches to facilitate new discoveries and techniques within the process of making artworks.
Please note that we are meeting at the Colin Matheson Oval Clubhouse.
Please bring your lunch.
