Drawing South - An Artist journey to the Antarctic

Drawing South is a website documenting the visual communication of artist Nicholas Hutcheson from on board the ship Aurora Australis as it visits 3 of the Australian bases on one of the annual re-supply trips.

Nicholas will be heading to the Antarctic as part of the Australian Governments Antarctic Arts fellowship progam.

Each week of the 8 week voyage, a new set of drawings will be uploaded featuring the weather, interviews with people working in the Antartic, answers to viewers questions and the daily observations of things around him.

Part of this project is working with school students who are following the journey, asking him questions and learning about Antarctica and an artist’s process.

People can sign up to a weekly email alert which will be sent out when new drawings are added.
