January Summer Workshops Light, Colour & Reflections with Nell Frysteen Over 3 days, you will explore glass and other still life objects as a focus for light and colour. According to Nell "What is familiar to everyone is the experience of light, space and colour. Light does not exist for the painter as a tool, only colour and pigment. The illusion of light is created with colour". Students will launch from watercolour into other mediums in furthering art creations. Develop art techniques that visually reflect light across a range of objects.

Australian Tonalist approach to Painting in Oils Learn how to observe and record using tonal masses and colour. The method was advocated by Max Meldrum from the late 1910s and has been a method that many well loved artists, like Clarice Beckett, have used. The tonalist method presents a strong framework for students in documenting what they see, and with time, what they feel. Meldrum believed that a person did not require any special ’talent’, that anyone could be taught to paint provided they applied themselves diligently. We will work with a variety of subject matter, still life, portrait and landscape. Critical appraisal of your work will be made by the tutor and peers at the end of each class. A materials list will be provided upon enrolment. When: Friday 4th Feb – 1st April 2022 (one week break 11th March) 8 weeks Day/Time: 1.00pm – 4.00pm Cost: $290 / $270 HCC Book: https://www.trybooking.com/BWIGQ A materials list will be provided on enrolment.
