Archie 100 | Clicking Bricks - Capturing Clicks: Building Lego Portraits

To coincide with Archie 100: A Century of the Archibald Prize, Andrew and Damian from Lego Masters - “Grand Masters” are back with their latest workshop to help artists of all ages to build a frame-busting portrait! Bring a picture of a favourite person for inspiration, or bring them to do the workshop with you. You could even be your own model! With tens of thousands of Lego* parts at your fingertips, going beyond the canvas is only the start of your creative journey!

*Note, Lego is provided for use in the workshop only. Participants take home a polaroid of their creation on the day.

An Auslan Interpreter will be present for the 11am - 12pm workshop. 

Artist Bio
Meet Andrew & Damian aka Clicking Bricks! We are LEGO enthusiasts who have a long history with LEGO building. Both building from a very early age, we had a similar experience of growing up with LEGO till our teen years, then re-discovering it again as adults. Our first meeting was while exhibiting at one of our local LEGO club events. Having similar interests, it was not surprising when we were drawn to each other's work and immediately became friends. However, it wasn't till "LEGO MASTERS" came to Australian TV screens, that we were inspired to put our skills to the test.

Once we were chosen to be part of LEGO MASTERS Australia - Season 2, we coined the team name "Clicking Bricks". Both as a playful commentary on our instant friendship through LEGO and the more literal sound of putting bricks together. After spending so much time building together on "LEGO MASTERS" we found our collaborative building approach to be incredibly rewarding. It's that enjoyable experience of creative collaboration that we now want to share with others.
