Last Friday, 4 June, Year 10 completed their first session of the Land, Sea, Air Drawing incursion with artist Tania Mason.
Students experimented with a variety of techniques and processes to create samples in charcoal, ink and watercolour. For each medium, students were encouraged to push the boundaries in terms of mark making and application techniques to create unique representations of local flora and fauna.
Students engaged with the artist’s practice and learnt a lot from tutorials demonstrated by Mason as she simplified her process and demonstrated how to build these materials through layering to create a resolved work.
These fundamentals learnt in the first session will be built on next term, when Tania Mason returns for the second and final incursion.
