These workshops are designed to bring together 6 artists in a small intense one-day painting experience.
There is much interaction, discussion and personal
reference as we explore the inventive powers of memory and mark. We focus on how abstraction, especially when carried by emotional memory, can represent universal truths in 'seeing' the landscape.
The workshops are also very much about experimentation, loosening of expectations and pre-conceptions and discovering
each artists true potential.
WHERE: At my studio 23 Coronation Avenue Cronulla
COST: An intense one-day workshop for
6 artists only 9-4pm $250
I also run one-on-one work shops for artists wanting a customised and intimate time to develop a body of work, discuss ideas, experiment or build portfolios.
10-2pm $250, 9-4pm $350
MATERIALS: A4 Images of photos you have taken of simple
landscape forms. eg tree/shadow, rocks/pool.We do not work
from these images but initially they become catalysts for memory
and invention of form. They are then put away and artists are
encouraged to work on developing ideas that contain a
communicative link to what they have seen. You will need acrylics preferably in pots for quick, easy access, large
brushes, strong paper, graphite/oilsticks, waterpot, plastic
bowls/knives, paint rags, painting clothes and your lunch.
Tea/coffee/artbooks and personal discussion available all day
