Drawing Theatre with Godwin Bradbeer

Drawing Theatre is a rare opportunity to work with one of Australia’s most revered contemporary artists, Godwin Bradbeer.

Starting with an artist talk on Friday evening, titled The Aesthetics of the Flaw: A survey of the work of Godwin Bradbeer,
this masterclass will address perceptual, analytic and expressive drawing of the human subject.

The Saturday session will concentrate on a structural analysis of visible human physiology, proportion and energy. 
The Sunday session continues this focus, with an increased attention on the head and upper body architecture. 

Working from life models as a primary source, the emphasis of the masterclass is on the perceptual comprehension of the human body, and by extension, a more acute consciousness of ourselves. Issues relating to linear structure, tone, light, anatomy, intimacy, monumentality, and symbolism will be addressed in sessions that incorporate practical demonstration, discussion of work in progress and the location of ideas within historical and contemporary contexts.

Friday 2 September 6pm – 7pm
Saturday 3 September 10am – 4pm 
Sunday 4 September 10am – 4pm
