The Illustrated World
Tutor in Residence
Tiffany Shafran from Toowoomba
Tiffany is a contemporary artist who is completing her PhD in Visual Art at the University of Southern Queensland. Her work deals with the combination of traditional and non-traditional materials focussing on drawing and works on paper. Interested in the decorative and uncanny, she combines aspects of portraiture and the natural world to make works that explore new ways of creating representational art. Tiffany has exhibited nationally and internationally and has facilitated workshops at the Queensland Art Gallery.
The class will focus on new ways of creating representational art works through experimenting with various materials and unexpected combinations. Demonstrations of graphite, coloured pencils, ink and gouache will form a basis from which participants can create their own interpretations of found imagery. The class will also investigate textural dimensions for works on paper through stitching, layering and cutting.
The class is suitable for participants of all levels as it will look at both foundation and more experimental techniques related to drawing and mixed media.
