Breathing the Land 2 is an invitation to begin or to continue an experiential research project focussing on deepening our relationship to the landscape we inhabit.

This 7-week art practice will incorporate a range of modalities including meditation, walking, observation, drawing, painting and assemblage. We will make use of materials from the landscape to respond to country, drawing with local ochres, dyeing paper with local botanicals, fuelling our visual responses with local research. The course will combine time out in the landscape with time spent in the Laneway Studio and participants will be encouraged to work expansively with nature over the duration of the course to refine ideas and bring them to resolution. Preference will be given to those who are continuing from Breathing the Land 1, but there is also opportunity for interested participants to join this new class.

This training is subsidised by the NSW government.
