Lunch is 12.30-ish & we’ll be working through till
4 to 4.30 for those who like to wind down slowly.
Most art materials needed will be provided with you fee.
Do bring a journal or sketch book, any favourite art materials you love to use like coloured pencils, mixed media, watercolours ... and if you want to use high quality paper let me know ahead of time so you can purchase something here if you would find that easier than getting to an art shop. Allow $5 or more if you want to buy quality watercolour paper which is optional. As a teacher I like to show you what you can expect from different quality products but I have often been on a tight budget…. so no need to spend extra!
Most of the work we do will be on various kinds of paper … or in your Journal!
WEDNESDAY august 5 : Maybe full now… I need to check before taking any more on that date..
The Weekend Saturday 8 + Sunday 9 are available …
any Wednesday or Weekend day during August are ideal for me.
What about other days?
At this stage its no problem to find other days of the week. Its super easy if you are bringing a friend or two.
Because I do promos on Instagram and Facebook what is occuring is people who live in other states are requesting workshops… so that means I'm creating numbers for a group in other places as well as having organisations book me to travel to them.
Also I do Residency work out of Brisbane, mainly south of Sydney… so I dont run a permanent class each week at my studio. Instead I know what Month I am free... tell everyone... then create small groups to come for a day.
Its been absolutely fantastic doing this… great fun and we get to know each other easily working like that.
Very relaxed and highly stimulating, fulfilling workshops seems to be the feedback.
Anyone wanting a particular date …. please suggest a date and I’ll put that out to others.
Studio workshops are small but have to the advantage of getting to see my Seed collection, Journals and paintings which are always around for inspiration here.
+ I’ve taught for over 3 decades in schools, Uni & Adult Education, in formal and alternative venues.
+ The starting point is always getting you oriented, making sure everyone relaxes, then entering into a kind of adventure where learning is absolutely enjoyable, one process after another is set up to get things rolling and by the time the afternoon sessions begin everyone is absolutely ready to get more focused on something you've particularly enjoyed discovering in the morning.
+ I hover around but don’t intrude! I make suggestions that may extend ideas for you to explore and ofren others in the group will bounce off each other too, depending on the day. I like to do a few 'Show and tell’ interludes … there’s plenty in the studio to share and inspire.
