Saturday 3 August | 9.30am – 11.30am, 12pm – 2pm and 2.30pm – 4.30pm

Join visual artist, Erica Seccombe for the second series of Drawing in Nature to explore different materials and techniques for observational drawing. Inspired by the natural world of plants, the workshop is open to all ages and experience levels to participate in collaborative drawing.

In small groups, participants will learn multiple techniques of observational drawing using microscopes and magnifying glasses. The aim of this collaborative project is to encourage artistic exploration and conversation around the ways in which we interact within the cultural and environmental landscapes of Campbelltown. As the experience of nature is often the connecting thread between different communities, the workshop will focus on the importance of care and wellbeing through the exploration of plants.

The drawings created in this session will contribute to the unique collaboration between Campbelltown Arts Centre and Campbelltown Hospital, which is informing the design of the new hospital building and interiors.
