Terms and Conditions of Enrolment

course overview

Working from subject matter chosen by you, learn to recognise and develop your personal visual language in drawing. Pam Vaughan leads you through a sequence of drawing exercises in which you will become more conscious of your subjectivity in making creative choices, leading to the production of powerful images. You will be encouraged to explore a range of drawing mediums, techniques and compositional tools and will complete a drawing project of your own design. Through individual and group tuition, demonstrations, and analysis of the work and practices of historical and contemporary artists, you will develop skills that will allow you to reflect insightfully on your own work.

teacher profile

Pam Vaughan has been a finalist in the Sulman and Dobell prizes, received a national printmaking award, and holds postgraduate qualifications in studio practice and teaching. Her practice focuses primarily on drawing and printmaking, but she also explores painting and sculpture. Her artworks reflect an ongoing love of animals, as well as an investigation of the subconscious, not only in subject matter but also in relation to mark-making as a physical and energetic extension of the body. Pam’s current studio explorations involve making a response to the landscape and creatures of the Blue Mountains.
