What’s it all about?

In November we are going to have the wonderful Barry Dean lead us in a drawing workshop, “Digital Drawing: the international visual language — capturing your imagination using a graphic tablet”.

Sydney born, Barry worked in the animation industry for 24 years. Initially, he produced artwork and animation for TV commercials, documentaries and feature films. In 1988 he joined Walt Disney Animation Australia as a background artist. During this time he painted more than 7 500 individual pieces of art for use in 17 feature films and 175 TV series episodes. He left the Sydney Disney studio when it closed in 2006. For more than a decade he has also been a part-time teacher at Enmore and Randwick TAFE giving lessons in drawing and animation – both traditional and digital. Throughout his career drawing and painting the human figure has remained his primary artistic passion. His favourite software is Corel Painter.

This is a wonderful opportunity for members and friends and we look forward to seeing you on 5 November for our last session of 2008.
