Course Description:
If you’ve always loved banksia cones but have been too daunted by their complex structure to try drawing them, this course will help demystify the process. Students will be able to use graphite, coloured pencils and charcoal to create satisfying depictions of one of Australia’s most iconic plants. By the end of the class you will be able to tackle these wonderfully complex seed pods with confidence and flair, producing a final completed drawing ready to frame

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understanding of banksia cones and the way they are formed
  • Working knowledge of graphite, charcoal and coloured pencil techniques
  • Knowledge of how to create a three-dimensional appearance using these mediums
  • The confidence to create interesting compositions in your drawing
