Over three days join visual artist Laura Wills to explore collaborative drawing practice. This masterclass is about responding to what is in front of you and leaving a mark/ trace/ pattern. Allow for curiosity, flexibility and experimentation. We will explore a variety of mediums and themes to create immersive collaborative artworks, and use multiple scales and surfaces such as the road, body, clothes, maps/ book pages etc. Think large scale ephemeral site specific outdoor drawing and ask questions like how can we work together to create art, who owns the art? How do we come up with the ideas, how can we invite people to be part of the artwork.


Please don’t buy anything new, let’s use up some materials you have already like textas, pens, pencils, bring a brush selection if you have one and one bag of clothes destined for the op shop.

Laura will provide:
Maps, photographs and book pages, clay paint, op shop clothes, pastels, pens, ink
