COURSE OVERVIEW

Learn to use your sketchbook as a way of seeing and interpreting the world around you, from first impressions to sustained studies and finished works in journals. Work from thumbnail sketches to rendered drawings using a range of media, from charcoal and coloured pencils to oil and chalk pastels, inks and watercolours. Work in the magical Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and learn how to transfer the immediate world into visual shorthand with jottings, notations and sketches, and to understand scale, perspective and composition.

On the Saturday return to the National Art School studios to collate, discuss and resolve your observations and sketches into larger sustained artworks. Throughout the workshop, the tutor will provide helpful hints and strategies to transfer these simple in-situ project based activities into the classroom to implement as a single lesson or resolve into a more developed unit of work.

Completing The National Art School Art Matters Professional Development Workshops will contribute 10 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 2.1.2, 2.2.2, 4.1.2, 6.2.2, 6.3.2, 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

Research basis of the collaboration

This program provides intensive and extensive professional development in the area of drawing and painting within the studio based tradition of the National Art School. The aim of research in the Visual Arts at the National Art School is to develop a highly sophisticated level of practical skills and aesthetic considerations resulting in the creation of artworks. Teaching and learning at the National Art School is based on the Atelier model of studio-based arts education whereby the lecturer, as a practitioner in their field, brings their expertise to teaching in the studio. These teachers, who are distinguished in their fields, provide intensive tuition and encourage workshop participants to share ideas and debate issues with teachers and peers whilst exploring technical and conceptual directions.

This program also encourages teachers from the primary and secondary school sector to; explore themes of the landscape, environment and sustainability; promote skill development in visual literacy and the visual arts; and engage with peers and colleagues to teach and learn from a cross-curricula perspective.

Part of the 2019 Garden Art Month – a collaboration between the National Art School and the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney
