Breathing the Land 1 (Pt 1)

There are currently no openings available for this course.

Introduction:

Breathing the Land 1 (Pt 1) is an opportunity to join a small group in an experiential research project focusing on deepening our relationship to the landscape we inhabit.
 
This 4-week art practice will incorporate a range of modalities including meditation, walking, observation, drawing, painting and assemblage. We will make use of materials from the landscape to respond to country, drawing with local ochres, dyeing paper with local botanicals, fuelling our visual responses with local research. The course will combine time out in the landscape with time spent in the Laneway Studio and participants will be encouraged to work expansively with nature over the duration of the course to refine ideas and bring them to resolution.

  • Drawing with local ochres
