Starting with plein air sketching, research and imaginative brain storming. Concepts will be bought to life using wire and recycling found objects. Students will be encouraged to sketch, print, paint and paper mache to create 2-D / 3-D native fauna. Exploring their unique and individual idea's while learning new techniques and creative skills.
