2 HOURS OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
This first session features artists Julia Robinson and Luke Thurgate. Both presenters will suggest ways of thinking through art making and the importance of practice and experimentation. A hands-on practical component is included during the session so make sure you have your materials ready.
- Please source and print three or more images of artworks (multiples printouts at varying scales may be fun). Ideally one should be a contemporary work and the others from a range of historical periods.These will form the basis of a collage exercise. Consider having something figurative/representational and something spacial/formal.
Tip: Source your images from either AGSA's Online Collection or The Met

- A4 sheet of paper, scissors, glue stick
- Basic drawing materials (graphite, charcoal, eraser, drawing paper) A few sheets of white paper, newsprint or butchers’ paper (A3 or larger)
