course overview

This skill-focused workshop takes students through the basic principles of drawing, with reference to historic and contemporary drawing practice, while nurturing individual artistic expression and responding to each student’s level of ability. Kim Spooner teaches the formal aspects of composition and shows how to develop drawings from interesting arrangements of objects, working from a life model to en plein air (outdoors). Learn how to capture quick studies to record the essential information and how to develop them into finished drawings. She demonstrates how to use a variety of drawing mediums with ink, charcoal, watercolour, coloured chalk and collage. Students will also be encouraged to draw from their imagination and personal aesthetic.

Kim is a prolific exhibitor, and her practice involves constant dialogue with contemporary and historical masters. Her recent exhibitions explore narratives using metaphor and allegory, recalling personal history and creating visual stories that refer to the human condition. She is a figurative and still life painter and an expert in encaustic and egg tempera techniques. Kim’s skills as a draftsperson have been recognise in recent times, with her large-scale drawings being shortlisted in major exhibitions and awards such as the Dobell Prize for Drawing.
