WEEKEND WORKSHOPS

BSA Workshops are usually held over one weekend, from 10am to 4pm. Workshops allow for intensive focus on a diverse range of visual arts subjects and mediums, with experienced teachers who are nationally-recognised practicing artists. The contact time involved for a weekend workshop is usually about half as many hours as for our standard six-week short courses. 

All classes are held at 112 Dalley Street, MULLUMBIMBY

BRENT HARRIS | MONOTYPE: THE DARK FIELD (DF1801)

Brent Harris is a highly regarded artist whose striking body of work traverses painting, printmaking and drawing.  His work is held in numerous collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, the National Portrait Gallery, and the British Museum, Prints & Drawing, London.  He is currently undertaking the BSA Ralph Woodford Residency with his partner, artist Andrew Browne.   

During this residency in Mullumbimby Creek, Brent is offering a one-day monotype workshop at BSA as part of a cultural exchange. 

In this workshop students will be taken through the 'dark field' monotype process made popular by Degas. Brent will share the intuitive methods he uses to stimulate the discovery of new imagery in the tonal field that this technique brings to the surface, a process he describes as 'entering a darkened room, in search of an image. MORE INFO
