When working in schools and galleries we focus on the learning more, and have time to go fully through the creative process. For this I run 2 x 2hr workshops per day for 20 students per session. I need one artist/volunteer helper for this, if it's a school group this could be the teacher. We talk about the difference between 2D and 3D art, we talk about abstraction and representation, and the difference between a pattern and a picture. Then we do a bit of observational drawing (outside or inside) as a warm up and also to gather some patterns we will draw before going on to construct the sculptures. In these sessions we can build a larger variety of shapes, from very simple to multi piece shapes, as we are able to give more help to the students. This can be from a one day engagement to any amount of time. The picture above is from a one day outing to Ararat Performing Art Centre (2016).
