Course Overview

Learn to draw using practical techniques as you develop your creativity within a supportive studio environment. Deborah Marks guides you through the visual language of drawing in a logical and simple way to help build your confidence. With demonstrations and practical exercises on the essential strategies of line, shape, tone and mark-making, you will work from small studies to larger, sustained drawings. Deborah instructs you in how to draw proportion, perspective and the figure/ground relationship in order to create unique compositions with subjects that include still life scenarios and the life model. In the course both representation and abstraction will be investigated, enabling you to have an authentic experience of the creative process using a variety of media such as charcoal, pencil and collage materials.

Lecturer Profile

Deborah Marks’ art practice includes painting, drawing, photography and collage. Deborah is inspired by her interest in psychological aspects of the human condition. Her figurative artworks reside between representation and abstraction as an exploration of the ambiguity between surface and illusion. Deborah has been a finalist in the Kedumba Drawing Award, the Portia Geach Memorial Award, the Mosman Art Prize, the Blake Prize and the Korean/Australian Arts Foundation Prize. She has exhibited with Defiance Gallery, Charles Hewitt Gallery, Stanley Street Gallery and Kunstverein Murnau, Germany, and most recently exhibited with Wagner Contemporary, Sydney. In 2007 she was awarded the National Art School Onslow Storrier Studio Residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. Deborah holds a Master of Fine Arts degree and lectures in the National Art School Drawing Department. Her artwork is represented in both public and private collections.
