Charcoal

"All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ”
-Pablo Picasso

Through Lifelines and my pop-up Champagne & Charcoal classes, I would like to give grown-ups who may have strayed from their childhood creative selves, an opportunity to rediscover what it feels like to be an artist whilst confronting their hesitations of drawing the human form ... armed with charcoal in one hand, and a glass of bubbly in the other.

The classes are guided and offer individuals the opportunity to challenge not only their drawing skills, but how they look and see things in a completely uncompetitive environment. 

Classes are suitable for ALL levels of experience, with novices possibly finding the most surprising outcomes.

If you would like to find out more, feel free to get in touch.

"Aneta’s teaching method’s were unique and effective. She challenged everyone to open their mind, and to see things in light and shade, rather than simply in conventional borders.

I walked in to the class as a drawer, and I think it’s not too bold to say that when I walked out, I was on my way to becoming an artist, or at least understanding art.

It is not often that one can see – quite literally – how much has been learned in the space of a couple of hours. I think this is valuable because it proves that people can develop skills completely outside of their comfort zone.

I expect that I will draw on this experience for confidence when I am next faced with performing a task that is outside my comfort zone.

I really enjoyed the class and I would be keen do a course. I think that doing things that are completely out of step with the rest of your daily routine helps to ensure a broad experience of life.

And of course, live art is a great reminder that beauty comes in many shapes and sizes."

VIDEO : Amnesty International's 'At Arm's Length' event

What a great night !

There's something about being surrounded by energetic passionate individuals who get together for a worthy cause.

Here's a short video I threw together of some of the results from the Lifelines I drew for the Organic Gallery on the night ... and a couple of the reactions of their reveals.

See all the Lifeline portraits from the event with peoples messages responding to the evening's theme At Arms Length by clicking here.

A HUGE THANK YOU to eveyone who sat for me ... and an EVEN BIGGER THANKS to Vilva and Nick who let me film them for this!

Congratulations to Roxy, Lexy and Laura on organising these fantastic Artillery events, as well as all the Artists that put their creative expressions together to support them.

Let me know what you think of the video - hopefully the first of many to come!

"'AT ARM'S LENGTH' takes this idea to the creative extreme and uses the Arts to explore one of the world's most pressing issues, arms trade, from a truly Australian perspective. Also it's a great excuse for us to make puns, because here at ARTilleryfest, we use ART as
our ARTillery to fight for human rights."

Heres some of the results from the last time I got involved with them
... hope to see you on the night!

a Beaufort Street experience

A little nervous about the lack of time for my setup at the Beaufort Street Art Festival, but mostly excited ... I made my debut into the world of public art I guess. It was such a fantastic day.

An 8.30 start (with a little help from my friends Fi + Fleur), in the theme of the Laundromat across the road from my setup, I had my little bit of street decked out with clothes lines, pegs, socks + undies and a small selection of samples from the real Lifelines encounters ...It was only at about 2pm I realised I hadn’t even taken a sip of water since getting there ... adrenaline was keeping me buzzing ... and I couldn’t let go of the momentum till I finally started to feel dizzy ... and my lunch-break saviours arrived.

By around 7pm I completed 31 portraits ... and gained 6 masterpieces of me for my collection.

One of the portraits I did towards the end of the day, Lexy Scott, was to offer me my next appointment ... The opening of the Artillery Festival (Amnisty International) later in the week.
