This three week online course will explore the importance of drawing across multiple disciplines engaging with the environmental challenges we face. You will discover how a drawing practice can be part of personal ecologies and contemporary wellbeing strategies by investigating observational and experimental drawing practices between living organisms and their physical environment.

During the course you will expand your methods and processes for drawing, including the environmental implications of practice, methods and materials, providing you with an introduction to contemporary environmental approaches to art.

This course is assessed via a completed body of work created throughout the course and a final presentation.

The course will be delivered by Tania Kovats.
