About your teaching artist – Tash Brennfleck 
Tash Brennfleck is a visual artist and facilitator, based in Springvale, Melbourne. She is currently exploring the accessibility of art, in not only the physical, but also the conceptual, through her drawing practice. Creating bright, colourful abstract images, Tash’s works look like entire microcosms of imagined galaxies under a microscope, with inter-related forms and beings existing within the confines of each piece of paper. 

Tash aims to remove barriers from contemporary art, celebrating the freeing nature of drawing for not just the institution, but for the individual. Rejecting the exclusionary relationship of artist and viewer, Tash aims to educate, explain, and inspire communities; fostering communication, collaboration, and connection. Social Media – IG: @tash.brennfleck
