School holiday workshop for teenagers
Australian Symbolism: The art of dreams
Rather than representing the real world, Symbolist artists sought to suggest altered realities as conjured by the mind. To evoke ideas, dreams and sensations, they envisaged poetic landscapes, femmes fatales and figures drawn from spiritual and mythological terrains.
This teenage workshop will explore these themes and ideas using drawing and watercolour techniques. A wonderful opportunity to explore ideas, mood and imagination to create a series of unique and personal artworks.
All materials provided.
