Minutiae – Children
Nature observation and illustration
As part of this year’s Art + Science program, Penrith Regional Gallery is tapping into the minute and magical details of the natural world, exploring the curiosities within, and teaching skills to create artistic renderings of these fascinating places, spaces and creatures.
Minutiae will focus on the details of a normally unobserved natural world. In this workshop, you will build observational and visual interpretation skills and create a deeper appreciation for the details of nature and its application to scientific illustration with passionate nature enthusiast Tom Covell and expert scientific illustrator Angus Fisher.
While exploring the use of fine-line pens and watercolour paints on paper, these scientific illustration workshops will focus on making accurate observations and representing details of forms and textures.
Through this artistic lens, they will offer participants an experience of scientific discovery that is creative and inspiring.
Suitable for ages 6 – 12
Presented by The Nepean Science Hub and Penrith Regional Gallery, part of Penrith Performing & Visual Arts with support from Celestino Developments and Inspiring Australia NSW as part of its Year-Round Program initiative.
