Course content
Day one
With a focus on experimental creativity, students will be encouraged to initiate both traditional and non-traditional methods of drawing, under the careful guidance of the teacher. Exercises such as drawing with eyes shut and drawing with the opposite hand will be encouraged, to achieve a drawing style that is loose, free and gestural. These classes are perfect for beginners and also for more experienced artists who may feel they need a new approach to existing techniques.
Students will create their own response in a site specific location along the edge of the Queanbeyan River, well known for it's bird life and platypus habitats. Claire will guide students through a step by step process, outlining possible approaches to constructing a landscape drawing. 
Day Two
After a rigorous day of preparing, planning and experimentation students will then initiate a longer painting study in the studio. Students will be encouraged to develop a resolved interpretation of the landscape, using traditional painting methods.
