Join Frances Cannon, Beci Orpin and Smiling Mind for a two-hour workshop in which you’ll learn how to draw with emotion. During this creative workshop you will explore the META principles—Mind, Emotions, Thoughts and Awareness—through illustration.

You’ll explore techniques behind drawing different emotions, like using body language in characters, developing their facial expressions and using colours and line-styles that evoke different emotions. After this, we’ll turn on some tunes and see how your drawing changes as the beats bring up different emotions for you!

All materials will be supplied on the day—just BYO best self.

NB: If you’re a teacher or school representative interested in bringing a group of students along to this event, please email Thanks!

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
