School Holiday Program

School holiday program – Drawing in the gallery

“Explore the wonders of the gallery with a guided drawing tour”

In this workshop you will be taken on a guided tour through the current exhibition we will explore fun drawing activities with some drawing techniques inspired by the work in ‘Planetary Gestures’.

Planetary Gestures explore ideas surrounding ecological systems, ancient knowledge, celestial blueprints and tidal movements across the land, sea and sky known as Australasia, part of the wider Asia-Pacific and the ‘Great Ocean’. This framework brings together a range of artists who think deeply about alternative geographies; paying respect to the cultural continuum and envisioning a future, not only equipped with this knowledge, but also actively enacting it.

Cycles of movement and time are explored by Australian and international artists including Amrita Hepi, Susie Losch, Raqs Media Collective, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Jimmy John Thaiday and Trevor Yeung.

Wednesday 5th April – 10.30 – 11.30am
Wednesday 12th April – 10.00 – 11.00am
