Fixing the Shadows

with Adam Cusack

Day 2 Session


Suitable for: SECONDARY

Australian Artist Adam Cusack (Winner – 2016 Jacaranda Drawing Award) will lead a hands-on workshop focused on creating realism through the moulding of light and shadow in drawing.

Using a range of drawing materials and techniques master draughtsman Adam will share some of the hard-earned lessons from a career spanning 32 years at the drawing board.
His creative approach honours the traditional picture plane utilising simple methods, applying charcoal or pigment on the prepared surface.

‘The act of making something to ‘look real’ is not what’s necessarily important to the work. However, I have found that spending time on rendering the subject gives value to the idea”
