Still Life Geode Workshop

Saturday 27 April 2024

2:00 PM

Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm Suitable for teens and adults Artist Gabby O’Connor will run a workshop that uses inspiration from her artwork, All the Colours, All the Light, that is currently in the foyer of MTG. Gabby will talk about her work in Antarctica, come and hear all things icebergs and ice. The workshop will use some of the remaining shapes from the installation. It will look like some kind of technicoloured transparent geode! Gabby will support participants through some basic warm up drawing exercises, and then we would create some simple water colour experiments/responses to the still life using only 3 colours - cyan, magenta, and yellow! We will use layering and watering down of the colours to create senses of translucency and tertiary colours. Depending on available time, we may then make some small geode shapes/bergy bits using photocopies, or a freeform strategy that uses recycled paper.
