Members Workshop: Drawing with Riley Payne

Wed 20 Dec 17, 6pm–8.30pm
NGV International
Meet: North Entrance, (via Arts Centre forecourt)
Ground Level

In an attempt to find the humorous, weird and potentially perverse, NGV Triennial artist Riley Payne re-renders existing images in his labour intensive graphite drawings using combinations of mundane stock imagery, text and shapes.

In an exclusive after hours workshop, Riley guides members in a drawing session using the techniques he uses in his own practice.

Learn to look at everyday images in new ways and find something unexpected to emphasis in your drawing.


  1. Develop new ways of looking at everyday images
  2. Practice drawing
  3. Create your own drawing of a cropped image
