Good drawing skills do however do give more options as to what you can produce but sometimes they can also be a bit restrictive re allowing oneself to work freely. Either way you will be encouraged to work in a way that suits your skills and to find your genre and style.

Saturday July 6th. ENCAUSTIC. Try something new …. painting with hot wax. Intriguing. (0ne vacancy only… I could squeeze in one extra if you want to come with a friend). 10 till 12. $30 includes materials.

Thursday July 18th. VERSATILE ACRYLICS. Bring your own image, sketch or idea in your head to work from. I will guide you individually. You will have access to various mediums (modelling compound, iridescent medium, gel medium, mica paste etc) to incorporate if it suits your work. Bring your own support (canvas, mdf, masonite, perspex, paper etc) or I have board, stretched canvas or canvas paper etc even mounted canvas coasters ready to paint….. I also have the canvas and stretcher bars to make your own stretched canvas if you wish. Gesso available to prime surfaces. Paints, mediums, available for use on a user pays basis (professional or student quality). 10am To 3pm. $40. Equipment (eg palette knives and brushes), available to use. Consumables on a user pays basis or bring your own.

Saturday August 3rd.VINTAGE CRAFT…. CREATING FROM BREAD DOUGH .… this is not salt dough which is course and chunky. Bread dough, made well, is fine like porcelain. You can create your own jewellery using “clay” made from white bread and PVA glue (colour may also be added). Find out how and make some jewellery items or small figurines. The craft was developed by entrepreneurial women when, during the war, metals were not available for jewellery making. Polymer clay (which I have if you prefer to use this) has superseded the use of bread dough but sometimes it is nice to go back to vintage crafts using inexpensive, readily available materials. It also has a softer, less manufactured look. 10am till 3pm. $40 includes bread dough. Polymer clay and jewellery findings extra if required.

Saturday August 10th.WATERCOLOUR: Preserving whites. In the morning you will learn at least 7 methods to make sure you have white in your painting. In the afternoon you will choose one or more of these in a completed painting. You will find out all methods are not equally suitable for each subject…. our eyes are sensitive to the differences. You will also learn how to apply masking fluid and avoiding the harsh edge, cut out look than so easily occurs. 10a.m to 3 p.m. $55 includes materials.
