Drawing and Painting Geology


Turn your love of rocks and geology into exciting and dynamic mixed media works.


More details

The science of geology is fascinating because it is the study of the Earth itself. Some of the earth’s rocks are four billion years old. This workshop explores many facets of geology from detailed drawing of individual rocks, to mixed media renditions of cliff faces, to collage paintings of beneath the earth’s surface. Students will use graphite, ink, charcoal, conté crayon, watercolour and collage. Inspiration will come from actual rocks sourced from around the world, historical geology textbooks such as James Hutton’s 'Theory of the Earth' (1785), photographs, educational posters, as well as artists including Jean Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Vija Celmins, Per Kirkeby, Anselm Keifer and Laura Rosenthal McManus. Suitable for all levels. SATURDAY & SUNDAY, AUG 3 & 4, 10AM - 4:30PM IN-PERSON
