Light Journey to the Future - 30 September 10am-4pm (Please note this session is now booked out)
Create a lamp that tells a story. Working with Sydney based artist Madeleine Challender, construct a lamp out of transparency film, LED lights and batteries. Using a range of glass paints, pens and markers, you will decorate your lamp with images to illustrate a story that you will write on the day. Madeleine will teach you how to develop and illustrate a story exploring the theme of ‘The Future’. This workshop is inspired by Madeleine’s children’s book “Journey of the Light Explorer” and will be utilising the technologies and techniques that she used to make her book.
Aliens, Monsters and Machines - 7 October 10am-4pm (Please note this session is now booked out)
Allow your imagination to run wild in this cartoon inspired drawing workshop. Working with Pop Illustrator Gnomes, learn how to draw and paint a range of slightly scary, but fun and comic characters. Creating images of aliens, monsters and machines, you will mix and match features to create new creatures. Learn how to work with the medium of Indian ink and fill your caricatures with a range of high chroma colour. Gnomes is a Sydney based artist who is inspired by video games and a legacy of cartoons, including The Simpsons, Ren and Stimpy, and Futurama.
