Draw the Iconic Lithgow Pottery with Ashlee Bucholtz

Sat September 26 at 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Drawing is an essential part of every art and design specialism, as well for those who wish to work in the creative industries, or for those who just want to have fun and that is at the heart of what we do here at the Pottery.
Whether you are a budding illustrator, or simply wish to improve your drawing skills to support other creative work, this new program gives you the chance to get stuck in with a range of different mediums, to produce exciting and original work, and develop your drawing techniques.
You will be pushed to experiment, to learn from your mistakes and to develop a critical understanding of your work.
You will cover the fundamentals of drawing and illustration such as the use of tone and light, colour, line, the edge, shape, form, mark making and negative space.
You will have the opportunity to
experiment with a range of materials including charcoal, inks, sticks, oil pastel and chalk pastels, acrylics to name a few. You will develop your critical awareness of visual communication and explore a variety of drawing methods and techniques to enhance your understanding of the creative process and effectively communicate your ideas.
This months program is all about perspective, shadows and lines, as you spend a spring day sitting in the open air of the Pottery grounds, studying the beauty of the iconic heritage building.
This program is held onsite at the Old Lithgow Pottery to inspire you!
