Sturt Summer school 1

Here I am at a summer school in Mittagong at the Sturt Summer school. Now Sturt is NOT a place, it is the name of an art school which operates in Mittagong. More info here

We are boarding ... all food and accommodation supplied in very beautiful surrounds.
The course we are doing is From Drawing to Collage with Marianne Courtenay whose wonderful work can be seen here
We have been drawing - quite a challenge for most of the class
An interesting exercise in volume was drawing bottles on black paper using white conte crayon
 We have drawn gourds with charcoal!!!!!
 and hydrangeas using a stick from the garden, and ink ... and a watercolour wash.
Still it has been very good to be challenged an to have some expert guidance
