Taking a line for a walk…

 

‘Art does not reproduce what we see; rather, it makes us see.’

Paul Klee (1879-1940)

‘There is no way to make a drawing – there is only drawing. Anything you can project as expressive in terms of drawing – ideas, metaphors, emotions, language structures – results from the act of doing. Drawing is a verb.’

Richard Serra (b. 1939)

On Saturday 28 July I had the pleasure of conducting a drawing workshop at Bendigo Art Gallery.

One of the workshop participants was Ann Jones, who has a morning show on ABC Radio.

Ann interviewed me for her morning show and you can see pictures of the workshop, read more about her experience, as well as listen to our conversation about drawing, via the ABC blog site by clicking here.
