    Collagraphs with Jo

    Some Printmaking Experience Required

    3 & 10 September 2017, 10am – 4 pm

     ASOC Studio at M16 Artspace

    $130 ASOC/CAW Members

    $170 Non-members

    We are thrilled to have the very talented and award winning artist Jo Hollier return to ASOC in September 2017 with an exciting collagraph workshop

    Have intensive fun creating your collagraph plates by building up layers of low-relief patterns with a mix of modelling media such as polyfila and found, flat objects. Initially we will experiment making several plates (6 or so) which will be coated with a gloss. Once sealed and dry, the plate surface can be inked and the image transferred to paper in various ways.

    This is an exciting experimental printmaking method and the results are often unpredictable. We will print the plates by the following methods in order to best interpret the imagery created on the plate:

    • Relief print
    • Intaglio print
    • Relief and inaglio.
    • Monoprint

    Some of the plates may be dry enough to enable us to print on the first day but usually a longer drying time is necessary.

     On the second day we will print all our plates and you will be amazed at the prints produced.

    About JO

Seeing Through Drawing

Drawing Workshop

We are thrilled to have multi-award and prize-winning artist Tim Hardy coming to ASOC in October 2017 with an exciting drawing workshop

Drawing is the most powerful way of learning to see objects more fully, and that is the focus of this workshop running over two days on consecutive Sundays. The first session is studio based, with a plein air workshop a week later.  The workshop should enrich your work whatever your subject and whatever medium you employ. The workshop is especially suitable for those at beginner and intermediate levels of drawing experience.

 I:  Studio Session

We will do a series of challenging and fun exercises which will include contour drawing, capturing gestures, and creating tonal drawings. You will be encouraged to create lively sketches that capture the essence of various objects.  We will use a variety of drawing media, including pencil, charcoal and ink.

II: Plein Air Session

The plein air workshop is focused on seeing a landscape more fully, and builds on the activities of the first workshop. A series of techniques in drawing a scene will be demonstrated, and then you will be assisted in drawing landscape subjects of your own choice.  Aspects of composition will also be considered.  Your plein air sketches can be used and combined as the basis of a more controlled drawing.

About Tim

Tim Hardy is passionate about the value of drawing, and is a multi-award winning artist, including a number of first prizes for his drawings and pastels. Earlier this year Tim was artist-in-residence at Tasmania’s Cataract Gorge.Tim is a very giving and sharing tutor and also convenes the popular ASOC workgroup, “Drawing Creatively”.
