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

This 8 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, fueling our visual responses with local research. The course will combine time out in the landscape and the Laneway Studio. Participants will be encouraged to work expansively with nature over the duration of the course to refine ideas and bring them to resolution.
