Workshop description: Join artist Lily Cummins and build your favourite creature from air dry clay, then imagine them in their natural habitat through a drawing. Students will develop skills in manipulating clay and translating their object into a drawing. Lily will guide students with construction, mark making and colour choices.
About the artist: Lily Cummins is an artist based on Gundungurra land (Southern Highlands, NSW). Her practice examines both the self and the emotive bonds and attachments people develop to places, through investigative mark making and colour theory. Cummins’ practice is intuitive and relies on her imagination to conjure up scenes of nostalgia for a memory the audience will never know or a place they have never been. However, the familiarity of these enigmatic places is deliberate as Cummins draws on her own memories to weave a dream-like patchwork of dissonant colours and marks.
