“Fabulous Flowers and /French Village scenes – A brush with Water!” watercolour workshop
Coming in April 16 – April 20, 2020, an exciting watercolour workshop that will give participants the opportunity to focus on drawing, composition, and the mixing of single pigments on the paper, to “catch the light” and achieve finished results that “sing”.
The aim of this workshop is to encourage creativity. Open to all comers 18 years and over.
Antoinette Blyth is an artist, tutor, and art judge, residing in Melbourne, Australia, and holds a Bachelor of Education. She has always drawn since childhood and values the skill of drawing highly. Her painting career began in oils but was drawn to the transparency and beauty of the many ways to paint with watercolour, hence her experience of over twenty years imparting the skills of watercolour painting to adults.

The school will offer 19 – 5-day visual art school workshops all running concurrently, by tutors who have been selected to provide students with professional, expert tuition in their chosen form of the Visual Arts.
The workshops will be daily, informal sessions with handy tips, demonstrations, personal critiques, and explanations of new skills and techniques that will make the learning process much easier. Communication is high on the list of priorities of all tutors.
At Fay Boyd’s Fine Visual Art School observation, imagination, curiosity, reflection, composition, tone, and style are explored as well as the joy of sharing conversations and experiences with peers. The School attracts beginner artists as well as experienced artists. Class sizes are small which allows each student to receive individual attention.
Tutors are masters in their field and are chosen for their ability to teach, share and communicate their skills to others keen to learn more. During the workshops, locals see and offer friendship to tutors and their students often sketching the heritage buildings, the wide street scrapes lined by magnificent trees, (sorry no Jacarandas out in April).
The huge Clarence River that winds its way through the city, with Memorial Park fronting the river at the end of the main street, wonderful place to sit, paint or draw. Graftons famous bridge is known as the bendy bridge, this bridge has two bends within the structure, many tutors choose this area and Fig Tree Avenue, one block of Breimba Street, and 2020 will see these trees 100 years old.
