experimental drawing workshop

at my abstract drawing workshop with
Monte Sant' Angelo school students last week^

I dont think these images do this workshop justice.
It really was a great day filled with colour, questions, and lots of experimentation with drawing.
Its been a while since Ive taught a group of school students and I had forgotten how talented and eager young artists can be! For 3 hours, myself and a group of 22 year 9 students from Monte Sant' Angelo high school played with ideas of landscape, colour, abstraction - without fear or hesitation.

And in the end what the girls produced was a collection of experimental and inspired mix media drawings that brake from conventional notions landscape and plein air painting.

Thank you to Kate and all the teachers and students from Monte Sant' Angelo high school.
It was such a great day...
And as you can see from these images above, the beautiful sunny Sydney weather was the icing on the cake!
