Join artist Jody Graham in a day of drawing birds with salvaged burnt wood from the Black Summer Bushfires
In this class you will be able to draw the wonderful world of birds using burnt wood salvaged from the Black Summer Bushfires, to pay homage to the endurance of the community and the environment. Some people see burnt remnants as a negative, using them in a positive way to draw and transform allows an individual to express the beauty in a new beginning. Join expert Jody Graham as you explore new techniques and investigate contemporary drawing practices, developing your skills of drawing with unconventional methods.
This event will be in conjunction with Foundation & Friends 'Transformation Exihibtion, Art in the Recyle'. Where Jody Graham will be exhibiting.
Lunch will be provided
About your tutor: Jody Graham
Drawing is at the core of Jody Graham’s multidisciplinary art. She relentlessly explores new techniques and investigates contemporary drawing practice. To do this she builds on and then moves beyond conventional drawing processes in search of new methods and tools that connect drawing with the fundamental need to make symbolic marks.
She won the open Greenway Art Prize in 2017, and has been a finalist in many major art prizes, including the 66th Blake Prize, ‘Sculptures at Scenic World’ in Katoomba, and at the Muswellbrook, Paddington, and NSW Parliament’s Plein Air painting prizes.
Jody’s work is held in the Kedumba Collection of Australian Drawings, in Waverley and Blacktown City Council collections, at the Western Sydney Institute, in the Nepean Arts and Design Centre, and in private collections nationally and in the UK, USA, and New Zealand. Jody Graham is represented by Nanda/Hobbs and Lost Bear Gallery.
