Back

Suitable for

Subject areas

The Arts, Science & Technology

Join contemporary artist Kerrie Poliness for an interactive drawing workshop inspired by the formal and poetic possibilities of line, pattern and abstraction.

 

Kerrie will introduce students to her playful, DIY approach to creating large-scale instructional drawings through an inclusive process that encompasses collaboration, geometry and gesture.

 

Students will hear from Kerrie about her practice and the possibilities for creating unique (socially distanced) outdoor, large-scale drawings based on geometry and a common set of instructions.

 

Each workshop includes a presentation on Kerrieā€™s work, followed by an on-site collaborative instructional drawing activity.

 

Kerrie Poliness is a Melbourne-based contemporary artist who is well known for her abstract instructional drawings inspired by conceptual art. She has been exhibiting and developing commissioned projects since the 1980s.

 

Her works are held in collections across Australia, including Monash University Museum of Art; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth; and QAGOMA (Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art), Brisbane.
