Drawing is a mode of thinking visually, making perceptions and ideas appear at the moment they occur.

Dr Jan Hogan, Head of Studio (Drawing)

Jan Hogan

‘The Drawing Studio promotes an expanded definition of drawing and the different ways they are conceived, made and used. With an experimental spirit, your learning will build independent thinking and inventive making.

The process of drawing develops a heightened awareness of the visual world, an awareness that is both subjective (knowing how you feel about things) and objective (understanding how things actually operate).

The ultimate transferable skill, drawing is a way of thinking or acting that is fundamental to creativity and is applicable to students with various backgrounds and experiences, studying visual arts and other disciplines.’

Head of Studio: Dr Jan Hogan (Hobart)

Academic Staff: John Vella, Dr Sue Lovegrove, Antonia Aitken, Jose Garcia Cesar (Hobart); Anna Van Stralen (Launceston)

Hobart. The drawing studio is situated on level two of the Hunter Street campus in Hobart, with inspirational views over Hobart's waterfront. The open-plan design accommodates a range of drawing classes from observational drawing, process drawing through to purely conceptual approaches. The Studio is equipped with drawing tables and stools, easels, an overhead projector, a large-format paper cutter and plan drawer cabinets for storage of work.

Launceston. On the upper level of a former railway workshop, remnants of industrial architecture frame a large, flexible space filled with natural light. Students have access to easels, tables, equipment and cleaning facilities during their classes and storage spaces for their work. Beyond the studio space, students have opportunities to extend their drawing skills in a range of outdoor environments from urban streets to wilderness areas.
