Shade, line and marks
Join our artist educator Carly Richardson to explore the use of shade, mark making and variation. View the exhibitions for inspiration, then experiment with the value scale in both colour and grey. You will be encouraged to combine these techniques with mark-making elements that focus on line weight and repetition. Extra interest can be added with simple collage elements.
Carly Richardson is a visual arts educator and collections specialist who is passionate about engaging people through the arts. Having previously worked with collections at the University of Melbourne as Registrar, Carly is interested in the intersections between artistic practice and their social, cultural and historical context. Having also worked on the Top Designs exhibitions at Melbourne Museum, as Collections Manager at The Dax Centre and on the board of Blindside Artist Run Initiative, Carly’s work focuses on the way audiences engage with objects and the importance of museums in telling our stories.
Carly will be presenting the February, April, June, August and October programs.
