What you'll do

You'll be putting pencil to paper in an observational drawing lesson, studying the breathtaking flora of the Royal Botanical Gardens, right in the center of Melbourne. No previous drawing experience is required! This is a workshop that is less about making the perfect, pretty picture (although this may of course happen!) but about the act of observation as a state of awareness. I will be running through various drawing techniques that examine drawing as an act of looking at what is in front of us, meanwhile posing questions about the way we use our eyes to see the world around us. These techniques lubricate the hand-eye connection which sets up the important foundation for a satisfying drawing. A delicious way to soak in the beauty of the plant life in the gardens.

Imogen

As a professional artist and meditation teacher, making drawings in the Botanical Gardens is part of my routine; a fusion of both my artistic and meditation practice. I have always seen drawing as the foundation for any 2-Dimensional artwork, with the act of looking at it's core. In recent years I came to notice just how in the moment and at one with my environment I am when making a drawing. There is almost a loss of ego and an embrace of the surroundings that is sort of spiritual. Having taught drawing back in London, this experience is a coming together of my two passions.
