Vacancies Have Opened in Creating With Acrylics Workshop with Chris Postle

The focus of this workshop will be mainly acrylic painting techniques using texture, design, and colour with some mixed media (charcoal, pastel etc). You will be playing with backgrounds and also be learning many different application techniques. Exciting colours and colour combinations will be used, taking reference from nature and life and applying our own little twists. We will get a bit more adventurous and explore the unknown, and also resurrect some old works. For those not so adventurous there is always plenty of detail to apply which is included in the process anyway, a bit of fine-tuning.

Beginners Workshop in Pencil & Graphite Pencil

MARGARET HASTIE

This workshop will introduce the fundamentals of botanical drawing and progress to painting in watercolour.  Initially, the focus will be on accuracy and observation in order to train the eye to see what is there, not what the mind thinks is there. We will begin by drawing botanical subjects in graphite pencil, concentrating on the controlled line, shading, tonal contrast and perspective (including foreshortening).After drawing simple plant structures we will gradually build up to more complicated subject matter. Botanical samples will be provided.

In answer to a common question we hear.

On our Terms & Conditions pages and on the Application Forms we state cut off dates for final payments and cancellations.

These dates are set so that we can then see whether a workshop has enough registrations to be viable to run and then to allow time to organise travel and accommodation arrangements for the tutors.

Quite a number of our workshops fill very quickly.

So…

Registrations will be accepted for all  workshops as long as there are vacancies available. If you are interested in a workshop that is booked out please contact Fay on 02 6643 1528 to be placed on a waiting list in the event of a student cancellation.

We hope this clears up any questions you may have on this subject and we look forward to seeing you in April 2017.
