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.

“The Passage of Light in Pastel” with Grace Paleg

Three major subjects Still life, Portraiture and Landscape in pastel. We shall be studying the passage of light across these subjects following Tonal Impressionism, which is about understanding how and what we see reduced to its most simple form. An extra element of Precious Leaf will be incorporated into portrait images to make each individual work something special.
