Hello from Kerry Road! Thank you Jeff for the suggestion. This camp spot is definitely going to become a family fav. Dog friendly & beautiful fresh water creek, this spot is 1.5hours from brisbane following the Mt Lindsay Highway onto Kerry Road. $6per night per adult. Children even less. Note the awesome welding of star pickets to drum for fire pits.. very impressive.
We're moving into the last week of Urban Art Binge's first sketching intensive for 2013. Can I tell you, it has been WONDERFUL. It is usually towards the end of these workshop blocks that the eyes really begin to open and let the magic in. Though I must say, that with this group, those magic moments have been arriving consistently since week 1. Using drawing as a way of engaging with the world is a very powerful and emotional way to move through life & I absolutely love sharing this passion of mine. Please enjoy the following drawings from the Brunswick Street & Chinatown Malls in Fortitude Valley last Saturday. The focus was on panorama sketching. We have seen various takes on the classical panorama amongst the group and also flirted with a de-constructed/ fractured pano as a means of capturing moments. YUMMY! See us in the City Botanic Gardens this Saturday from 9am-1pm. If you'll be in the area and would like to come and say hello, you're more than welcome!
We've been having some interesting conversations at UAB about the nature of learning and the risk involved in having a go. Especially when it comes to art there is a certain vulnerability that surrounds the unknown. It is exactly this realm of the unknown that we enjoy discovering and uncovering at Urban Art Binge... as a creative community we can all stand on the edge together and feel very comfortable in our uncomfortability. This week at New Farm Park we tried some sketching with watercolour and the outcomes were surprising and beautiful. We've chosen the following sample of images to illustrate this notion of risk and the joy that comes from learning new skills. Here's to life & here's to personal growth.
Let's face it! Brisbane at the minute is very WET! Conditions are not ideal for outdoor sketching, but perfect for gentle indoor reflective creativity. This weekend we treaded lightly and wandered through the layers of the APT7 Asia Pacific Triennial within the walls of GoMA. Binge tool of choice this week is BUTTER PAPER! Also known as non-waxed baking paper. $2 a roll from the supermarket and wonderful for drawing with layers.
