COURSE OVERVIEW

This week-long series of workshops aims to give students a taste of photography, drawing and ceramics across a range of themes and ideas, building a variety of skills along the way that develop as each day progresses. Some of the content will also relate to the NAS Gallery’s current Fiona Foley exhibition titled Who are these strangers and where are they going?

Monday: Go on a photographic scavenger hunt within the grounds of the National Art School. In this challenge you will be given a list of different images and ideas to capture on your own device or camera. Once you’ve ticked everything off the list, take your images into the digital lab to abstract and distort in Photoshop. Bring in a USB stick to ensure your photos are saved and can be printed at home.

Tuesday: Take your digital photography to the next level in this introduction to the Adobe Illustrator Program for students at a beginner level. Learn how to incorporate these technical skills to deconstruct and manipulate your own photographs and drawings to create unique digital collages. Draw on your imagination and ideas to play with shape, line, composition and layering as a way of creating new images.

Wednesday: Inspired by the artworks in Fiona Foley’s Who are these strangers and where are they going? exhibition, you will observe and draw the objects, patterns, materials, shapes and ideas you see and learn about to express the world around you in an abstract way. Learn how to use these simple things in the everyday environment to capture feelings and emotions about the world around you. This workshop will use a range of drawing media, such as pencil, charcoal and pastel as well as ink.

Thursday: Learn how to make your own drawing implements from found natural materials. Loosen up with gestural drawing exercises to rediscover drawing in a creative and supportive studio environment. Gather natural materials from the NAS campus to create your own brushes and draw from an array of found objects in the Drawing department’s collection. Work collaboratively and in ink to create a series of interesting large-scale drawings that can be reworked into smaller objects and books to take home.

Friday: This ceramic workshop will enable you to develop skills in using a range of handbuilding techniques to explore your ideas and create your own projects in clay. Taking inspiration from some of the ideas and objects in the Fiona Foley’s Who are these strangers and where are they going? exhibition to translate these colours, lines, forms and stories into a three-dimensional artwork. Move from pinch pots to vessels and coiling to sculptures, while learning a range of surface decoration techniques that create texture and colour with tools, found materials and slips.
