Nature imagined workshop
QUT is committed to the health and safety of our community. In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, the William Robinson Gallery and QUT Art Museum are closed to visitors until further notice. All public programs, including tours and school bookings, are cancelled until further notice.
Staff remain working and look forward to delivering new ways for the public to engage with our exhibitions, art collection and ideas.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
In this workshop, students have the opportunity to observe, discuss and interact with the spectacular artwork of landscape artist William Robinson, and his visual impressions of the South East Queensland hinterland. The program begins with a tour of the current exhibition at the William Robinson Gallery, which honours the life and work of Robinson.
Students will learn about Robinson's artistic process which draws upon both observation and imagination to summon memories and visual impressions of places he has experienced. Students will be led through a series of sketching activities before producing a small-scale painting with watercolour pencils and pastels, utilising the gardens and surrounds at QUT Gardens Point campus as inspiration.
This program is subject to staff availability.
