CREATIVE ART WORKSHOPS …. Tasmania, Australia.

Charles Reid floral style workshop

Regular Classes for ADULTS 

Retail materials available at studio.

. Consumables on a user pays basis, brushes etc, no cost for use.

Credit card facilities available



I am restructuring my classes (except for Tuesday’s) to offer a wider range of activities in a more structured manner.

They will be in (usually) 4 week blocks with the primary focus of each session identified. I have installed fantastic new lighting and am in the (slow) process of re-organising the studio. Retail art supplies and framing facility still available .

. Book (phone, email, message or text) and pay in advance at the rate of $15 session ie $60 for 4 weeks. Bank A/c 100 107 789 BSB 632 001

. byo materials or free use of equipment and consumables eg paper available below rrp

. if you cannot make a particular session and contact me, you may be given credit to use at a later date

. if, when booking, you know there is a session you cannot do please discuss….. I will consider enrolment at a reduced cost.

. Classes are generally limited to 6 so if a focus of a session does not suit you can do your own thing and get individual assistance on that. 

. Tea/coffee available

. Classes run from 1.30 to 3 but people often stay till much later. Formal teaching will finish by 3pm but you may like to finish off, chat, compare work, discuss points covered, have another cuppa. Because my studio is home based, I do not have to leave unless I have an appointment elsewhere. 

. In the rare event of me having to cancel a booked class, of course I will contact participants and reschedule/refund/offer credit.

. If you prefer my previous arrangement of come and pay on the day that suits, you can do that but will only be allowed to participate if the class running but not full and if cancelled I may not be here and will not be advertising that or contacting individuals. Fee for “come on the day” will be $20. If doing that you would be advised to check by phone first.

My small Tuesday afternoon ladies group, and Wednesday children’s session will run as previously.

Tuesday afternoon 1.30 p.m. to 3.30
Most often watercolour is chosen
Tues Evening… 7.30p.m. painting media, often watercolour.                                       Tuesday sessions do not have a start/stop date. I discuss where you are at when you start and organise an activity to suit all participants. It is often a “follow me” demo, but you may choose to do your own thing with assistance available. Each week we discuss who will be available the following week and decide what would suit as a focus. (if a newcomer appears the activity may be modified).

Following is feedback from a Sumi E workshop I ran.

Thanks so much for an enjoyable and informative experience.
I got a heap out of the day. I specially enjoyed the sense of freedom
that you imparted in relation to using this time honoured way of making
I know that I will need to practice heaps, but I feel you gave us not
only the basic skills and experience with the materials, but also this
wonderful liberation to let our work flow within the confines of the
I am inspired to do more Sumi e and to find my own style within it.
Thanks again,
Georgina (& Steve)

MAKE AN ART EXPERIENCE PART OF YOUR HOLIDAY without carting or buying gear. Many people want to try art but work and family commitments get in the way. Holiday time is a great time to have a go….. who knows what creative talents may be revealed. At the very least you will have fun and satisfy your curiosity. My extensive experience means I can direct you to media which are most likely to suit. And you only need to pay for materials used in the session

    hello my name Is Denise Clark and I have recently moved to Burnie and am looking for an art teacher.
    I was Living in Launceston and had attended classes with Rosemary Hill.
    I have also been on two overseas workshops with Greg Allen.
    I would love to attend your Tuesday afternoon class if you have a vacancy or your Saturday workshop in your studio.
    Anxiously awaiting your reply.

    • Hello Denise. It would be lovely to have you join an art class. You have certainly had some wonderful tutors in watercoour. I also tend to concentrate on watercolour (it is what most attendees seem to want, but I do encourage a more diverse exploration of media and of styles. Watercolour can be used in so many different ways. I will not be having a class this Tuesday due to medical appointments in Launceston. But the following week (11/10) is fine. I am at Penguin Market (near the plant nursery) on Sundays if you want to hve a chat, or phone me… the only Antonysen in our phone book. I will be demonstrating working with Polymer clay next Sunday then Inktense pencils the following week. I am running some half and full day workshops in November on silk painting, encaustic art, flowers and gardens and watercolour

    • Next workshop, Ink and Watercolour on May 12th. See my blog for details or phone 64282675. Tuesday class restarts after Easter Week with simple figures in the landscape (appropriate for any medium) NOTE:If someone comes and has a special reuest this topic may change… my aim is to please the students and direct the session to their needs.

    do u do workshops in the US? I live in the northeast.

    • I live in Tasmania, Australia. A few days ago I was talking to an American lady who was visiting Tasmania on a cruise. It was at a venue where I had a display and was demonstrating painting watercolour style on silk. She was interested in having me teach my style of silk painting in the US…. east coast. I am interested and will let you know if it pans out.
