Saturday 2 July
Experiments in Portraiture Workshop $100
How do you know you’re drawing *this person* and not *that person*? What is it about them that clearly signals that they are they and not someone else?
Portraiture is about observing and cherishing the differences; sensing and expressing uniqueness. This workshop of demonstrated techniques and thoughtful exercises are designed to help you sharpen your observation, try new ways of approaching your subject and build confidence in your creative instinct.

Beyond the Brush Workshop $100
Have fun with mixed media from watercolour to crayons and natural dye.
The workshop starts with exploration of media and a letting go of previous creative beliefs.
We will look at mark making, surfaces, creating depth and using new tools to create atmospheric artworks.
