Nature imagined workshop

William Robinson Gallery is reopening on Thursday 2 July and QUT Art Museum on Thursday 16 June. We encourage you to take a look at our COVIDSafe guidelines before your visit.

In the meantime, you can experience our current exhibition Elixir of Light by taking an interactive virtual tour or check out our #QUTArtAnywhere Activities for Kids to do at home.

Stay tuned as we work to deliver 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.
