Involving Symbolism Painting Workshop

15 June 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Utilising a rich source material of Australian Indigenous lore and drawing from the tropes and techniques of comic book, video game and pop culture creators this workshop will provide a unique insight into the methods Travis has used to create his work and how you can create working in the future and find your artistic voice. This workshop is aimed at those who have a strong knowledge of a painting / drawing technique and who would like to acquire ways to apply these skills to concepts. We will be using various artistic techniques to explore broad narrative concepts with a particular focus on blending the very old with the new.

The challenge is to not create a copy of another cultures story but rather to draw on them for inspiration and bring your own lived experience to fore of the work and how this is an exciting extension of your arts practice. Through the workshop you will work either as a group or on your own to create the beginning of a new original artwork. This workshop is suitable for both Indigenous and non-indigenous visual artists or even storytellers and writers who wish to look further than painting / drawing techniques and delve into the narrative behind the artwork with an emphasis on construction of a greater narrative behind their body of work.

Spaces for this free workshop are extremely limited and prior booking is essential.
