In this workshop, participants will explore how to make dynamic, beautiful and provocative images of flowers. Beginning with observational drawings of flowers we will then develop complexity, personality and texture to create a new interpretation of the idea of the flower. It is a workshop, which challenges traditional flower drawing/representation to create drawings which present contemporary and sometimes confronting outcomes.
Participants should have a love of flowers, drawing and creatively working with representation and ideas. This workshop caters to all levels of skill as play, discovery and discussion is encouraged. We will work primarily with charcoal and paper but participants are encouraged to bring any materials they prefer to use.
This workshop is taught by Filomena Coppola at Chapman & Bailey Studio in Fitzroy.
