DRAWING AT HOME WITH DAVID MIDDLEBROOK : AN ONLINE WORKSHOP

Blue Mountains artist David Middlebrook

Using materials found at home, Blue Mountains artist David Middlebrook guides students through foundational drawing techniques, with prompts for experimentation. This is a fantastic opportunity to stretch those creative muscles and connect with others in this social online workshop series. The classes are light, fun and inclusive, while giving participants the skills to create, explore and develop their individual vision.

David Middlebrook’s work is based in the Australian landscape and he specialises in large works dealing with tone and space. He has a PhD in the history of Australian landscape painting and drawing, and has exhibited nationally over his 25 year career. 

David has recently exhibited at Penrith Regional Gallery in a powerful cross-cultural collaboration with Aboriginal painter and printmaker Ada Bird Petyarre. 

DRAWING AT HOME WITH DAVID MIDDLEBROOK will be held online from 2-4pm on four consecutive Saturdays (11, 18 & 25 Sept and 2 Oct) $80 term fee. Bookings essential. A booking fee applies. Places are limited.
