Flying Arts Scott Maxwell recently delivered a workshop in North Queensland. We asked him a few questions about his experience.
What workshop, project or event did you facilitate?
My workshop Drawing with Determination: The spontaneity of the classes changed daily ~ it included a field trip into the rock scape in twilight hours, a life model, detailing several inanimate objects, having another group coming in and ‘documenting our creative spaces’ and a meeting with the Mayor at an art exhibition opening that culminated into a class concept design for four new street roundabouts being constructed in town.
What was the highlight of working with this particular community group?
The students were great to work with and must be praised for keeping the energy flowing through the early summer heat… everyday. Each and every one of them produced some truly amazing works of art. The self proclaimed non-artists evolved into painterly maestros of the paper. I think they even enjoyed the groups’ self critiquing. I always got a kick out of seeing positive reactions when students produced something they were really proud of. It just worked a treat!
This workshop was booked as part of our By Request programs.
By Request programs are available on-demand, and can be booked on behalf of schools or creative communities such as groups, festivals, local government and organisations. By Request programs can be delivered by our Flying Arts Artist and Facilitator Team anywhere across Queensland.
