Secondary Student Drawing Workshops in 2014
Registrations are now open from schools* (particularly country-based) for Secondary Student Drawing Workshops in self-portraiture and life drawing in March and April/May 2014. Class groups of between 15 to 20 students can register.
This is a terrific opportunity for country groups to also view the 2014 Adelaide Biennale of Australian Art, The Adelaide Festival and Fringe, and other city-based learning connections.
The drawing workshops extend student learning with expert tuition provided by key South
Australian visual artists in the areas of observation, composition, use of media, line, tone and
proportion. They offer a unique opportunity for secondary students to learn by viewing and
discussing a range of primary source works on paper from the Gallery's permanent collection with
the artist and peers. Participating students have the opportunity to build their Visual Arts
portfolios, as well as to submit works for the Art Gallery's
Secondary Student Drawing Exhibition held during the SALA Festival in August 2014.
Workshops are scheduled for 10-14 March and 28 April to 7 May 2014.
Self-portraiture cost per student: $50 / $35 equity and country students
Life Drawing cost per student: $60 / $45 equity and country students
All materials supplied.
Suitable: Senior Secondary students
Limited: 20 participants per session
Duration: 6 hours, 10am - 4pm

*registrations from individual students will be accepted in early 2014.
'From this workshop I gained skills in drawing faces, especially in correct proportion. We learnt many techniques to determine the correct places for facial features and also the spacing between these features. I also learnt more skills in drawing with charcoal and making different textures and shapes.' Chloe Tonkin, Year 12, Bordertown High School
