Borderline Workshop – THE REAL SELFIE: UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL with JOOLIE GIBBS 2 Day Workshop

February 19 @ 9:00 am - February 20 @ 5:00 pm UTC+10

This project was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.

Spend two days with Gympie artist Joolie Gibbs delving into the intricacies of portraiture to discover and reclaim your real identity and/or that of your classmates, beginning by looking analytically at the portrait, by exploring different facial aspects.

“We will touch on some well-known self-portrait artists, styles of portraiture, the fundamentals of portraiture, and undertake some up-close observations and personal reflections using drawing as our centre. You will go home with a better understanding of yourself, warts and all, with a new confidence in handling the portrait.”

Joolie believes in using what you have and will encourage participants to extend their use of materials. Joolie is a finalist in the Lyn McCrae Memorial Drawing Prize 2021, currently showing at Noosa Regional Gallery, and has a piece touring with the Flying Arts Regional Art Awards in 2022. She was involved in the project ‘Wild/flower Woman: Women Walkingon Country’ in 2020 and artists residency workshops through the Gympie Regional Gallery.
