Drawing into Collage into relief with Linda Bowden

Linda Bowden art 2

Suitable for both beginners through to more advanced students this workshop takes its inspiration from the built environment. Beginning with photos, images and drawings en plein air we will use collage, cardboard and card to transform a 2D drawing into a 3D low relief. This workshop is suitable for both drawers and painters extending the traditional disciplines into the 3rd dimension to increase knowledge of methods to suggest volume, space and depth in their work. A variety of drawing materials will be used including pencil, charcoal, white oil pastel and white chalk pastel and gouache.

Linda Bowden has been teaching sculpture and drawing to both children and adults since graduating from NAS in 1999. She is known for both her intimate and large scale sculptures, two of the latter being on permanent public display in Sydney (the Transfield collection Pier 8/9 Walsh Bay and Hunter’s Park in Bondi). In 2012 she became the first woman to join the Decade Club of Sculpture by the Sea having exhibited for ten times in the annual exhibition at Bondi. She has received the Art Gallery Society of NSW award at Sculpture by the Sea in 2010 and 2011. In 2013 her work, The Others, was a finalist in the Wynne Prize at the AGNSW. She works in a variety of materials and is keen to share her knowledge with others. Her classes are known for their relaxed atmosphere and sense of fun which Linda brings to her work.
