Drawing Intensive: Fran O’Neill

Fri 12 July at 9:00 am - Sun 14 July at 4:00 pm


Let’s play with curiosity. Breathe fire, push your ideas, experiment and invigorate your drawing practice.

Led by Fran O’Neill… an extra-ordinary teacher, on staff at the New York Studio School as well as National Art School.   With great knowledge of both art history, contemporary artists, materials and techniques; Fran will both facilitate group discussion and relate to artists one-on-one, developing everyones unique style and sensibility.

This 3-day intensive will focus on drawing, collaging, and using life around you as a direct examination of your personal artistic perception. You will come to understand more deeply your relationship to your visual world.

The workshop will integrate group conversations and collaboration, with the goal of working towards a body of work that may be big, small, or a series as the final product. Discussions with renowned artist and teacher, Fran O’Neill, will broaden each artists visual vocabulary and mark-making skills.

You are encouraged to use your own subject matter as the catalyst of your creativity. Or work from in the heritage precinct or regenerated quarry landscape of The Foundations.
