Live Art Workshops: Charcoal Drawing and Objects

Workshop Image

Create dynamic black and white images and learn about different types of charcoal and experiment with exciting approaches for their use. You will work on a variety of surfaces and create some inspiring ideas and textures to develop your charcoal repertoire in a number of small A4 artworks to take home. Bring along an image or two to inspire your charcoal exploration. Charcoal drawing is a deeply satisfying medium. It could be because they're so quick to complete, with immediate results, or that the final look is so impressive. Either way, people love charcoals. Even the great Michelangelo created a collection of charcoal drawings

Workshop Artist: Lizzie Connor

I am a professional artist and tutor with approximately 30 years’ experience as both. Originally from Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, I have lived in many places around Australia and I now live at Mudjimba Beach, on the Sunshine Coast. I have won many awards in South East Queensland, and to date have held approximately 24 solo exhibitions and a number of joint exhibitions.

My art tutoring has taken me to many places including the Greek Islands, Norfolk Island and a regular annual week of drawing and painting in Fiji, as well as working and completing residencies interstate. My works are created from the natural world and particularly the ocean and beach environment where I have spent all my life, and I have spent many years creating methods that now have become instinct. Different trends come and go, and I hope my work will stand the test of time and remain as relevant to its source as the day it was created and I hope the work evokes some wonderful emotions for the people viewing it.
