Saturday, April 13th to Wednesday, April 17th, 2019 inclusive.

Please Note that the start day of the art workshops is a Saturday, whereas we usually start on a Sunday, this is because of the Easter Holidays beginning on April 19th, 2019. This will give students of the workshops who travel from afar enough time to arrive home for Easter.

Please Note: All art workshops run concurrently this allows you to only enrol in one workshop. Fay Boyd’s Fine Art School will be held at the Grafton High School.

There are only a handful of vacancies remaining for our April 2019 art workshops. Be quick to secure your place.

Using acrylics as watercolour.

In this workshop, students will work with the tutor to articulate their own vision and particular challenges. The intention is to meet each individual exactly where they are and to support them in the production of work in the classroom that expands their practice in a personal way.
The format will lean heavily on individual instruction and will also include lecture and discussion and demonstrations of particular techniques. A step by step process will begin
with a fast foundation painting and will end with final approach options that are easy to learn and thought-provoking. Unearth fresh and honest art inside yourself and learn to capture it with paint. Herman will teach you to find originality in your own work.

Watercolour Magic! art workshop with Malcolm Carver

Malcolm Carver

Watercolour magic intrigues us all, yet it is so easy to become so obsessed with detail, that you often labour too long in striving for perfection.

Capturing the essence, is often more exciting, nailing the magic spirit of a place with the least number of strokes, not more.

Patrick Carroll

If you want to create paintings that “look more real,” through the improvement of your drawing, this workshop is for you. Both deliberate form-building and gesture will be used to capture the subject’s character. You will be shown how to handle a paintbrush suitable for the painting you hope to achieve, along with covering the canvas with paint. Drawing techniques used in creating bold and vibrant paintings will be demonstrated, such as blocking-in, perspective, and establishing effective value and colour relationships in a painting.

Free the artist trapped inside with Herman Pekel

Unearth fresh and honest art trapped inside your inner artist and learn to capture it with watercolour and acrylics.

You will learn about colour mixing, glazes, composition, drying time, thickness and edges to create an impressionist painting you never
thought possible with acrylic or watercolour.

Expect to be challenged, to be brave, and to have fun!

Like many artists, Herman Pekel experimented for a time with abstract expressionism, but he is now well known for his oils and watercolours. Herman is an artist of energy and enthusiasm. He is able to see a painting in almost any subject matter and is capable of
producing award-winning work in oil, watercolour or gouache. Environmental issues are a great concern to Herman and his love of the landscape reflects that in almost everything he paints. He produces paintings of strong design and powerful impact – every brush-stroke vibrant and visible. The scope of Herman’s work has ranged from dynamic industrial scenery to soft, draped interiors and broad Australian landscapes, which indicates the creative fearless nature of this unique artist.

HERMAN PEKEL – LANDSCAPES IN OIL – The Importance of Tone PLEASE NOTE: WATER BASED OILS

ONE VACANCY AVAILABLE

This is an informative and hands-on workshop designed for artists with some experience, based on the solid fundamental approach championed by the impressionists and realists. The first lesson in painting is don’t ever start a painting until you know why you are doing it. Next is how you are going to do it. Think things through and you will backtrack and correct less often. There is much to be said about spontaneity as long as you plan for it!
