Art Workshops

2018 CREATIVE ART WORKSHOPS

My workshops are designed to build your creative confidence and enable you to take home a beautiful work of art to hang on your wall. Whatever workshop you choose you will get plenty of attention and instruction, and be guided through the process of creating your own fabulous piece of art. In some cases your paints, brushes and equipment will be supplied, however in most cases you will be required to bring your own equipment and/or canvas. Please see individual workshop details to see what you are required to bring to class.

Workshops are offered in beautiful Merimbula on the Far South Coast of NSW and also Canberra in the ACT. I am also available to teach my workshops to art and community groups within Australia and overseas. Please contact me if you’d like to have me to tutor your art group or organise your own private group of friends to have an art lesson together.

NEXT WORKSHOP IN CANBERRA  (19-20 MAY, 2018)

I have been invited by ASOC (Artist’s Society of Canberra) to offer two individual workshops this year. Both a suitable for beginners or those with more advanced art skills. Whilst each weekend workshop will focus on abstraction, the first workshop ‘Abstracts for Nature’ (listed above) in May will focus on mixed medium, mono printing and collage as a main element of your artwork. You will produce work on paper and board which will be one dimensional and ready for framing.

The ‘Pure Abstraction’ workshop in October will be mostly about using paint and textural sub-straights to create effective 3 dimensional art. We will be using some paper, board and textiles to build texture but mostly this workshop is about colour and paint! We will build your art, layering as we go with paint, simplifying areas, perhaps destroy a little of it, rebuild particular areas, taken out others all together softening, sharpening, creating line and pattern. This is not a workshop for the bashful!!! Be prepared to get down and pretty messy!!! More info below.

 

As these two workshops are run through ASOC, you will need to register for either one through their website. Simply click on the image below which will take you to their Workshop and Short Courses page where you may register and pay online.
