Draw and Write Together with Visual Artist Susan Flavell and Writer Alan Hancock

28 November 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
5 classes - one each Saturday from Oct 31 to Nov 28 at 3.30-5.30 pm

Local artist Susan Flavell and writer Alan Hancock join forces to run a five-week course that brings together visual art and creative writing.

Would you like to join a group who come together to learn about and play with drawing and creative writing? Yes? Then join Susan Flavell and Alan Hancock at the Hub. They will create a space where you can open up your creativity with pictures, words, colour and stories. You’ll learn some straightforward techniques for developing your visual art and story-writing skills – and join in activities that bring the two together.

Whether you start with the words or the images, there’s no telling where the work might lead. But you can be sure it will be an interesting journey.

If you think you can’t draw, or don’t know how to write a ‘proper’ story – this course is for you. If you want to explore drawing and writing – it’s for you too.

You don’t need any experience of art-making or creative writing – and if you’ve already done some writing or drawing, you’ll learn some fresh perspectives on the creative process. You’ll get the chance to work on your own, and to join in some collaborative activities too.
And it should be fun.

Susan Flavell is a sculptor and artist with 30 years experience making and teaching art. Her interests include animals, the environment, the unconscious, the fantastic, the monstrous and the mythical.
Recent projects include a collection of 13 Goddesses that will explore ideas of the sacred, of antiquities, mythology, stories, taste, the unconscious, poetic collections, popular imagery and environmental issues.

Alan Hancock is a scriptwriter, author and university lecturer in theatre and writing. His scripts and short fiction have been produced by the ABC, the BBC, and by professional theatre companies in the UK. His short stories have appeared in journals and magazines in Australia and overseas. For ten years he taught Creative and Professional Writing at Curtin University, and in recent years has run many creative writing courses at libraries and community centres. He’s now working with a visual artist on a graphic novel project.

The five workshops will run on Saturdays, 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm, 31 October and 7, 14, 21, 28 November.
