Painting Graphics with Denise Copland

15/16 March 2019

'From the inside to the outside and back again'

The focus of this workshop will be two fold. Firstly, through exploring aspects of drawing and the graphic experience gleaned from observing the unique landscape, environment, its history as well as from the personal object. Secondly, these drawings serve as a rehearsal for producing no less than two idea / compositions that will then be extended through a range of colour application, glazing and acrylic painting techniques.

This workshop aims to encourage and nurture the individuals’ vision to determine the style of the work created.

Places are limited to 12 so please book early to avoid disappointment. Ring 03 528 8758 or email for more details.

Cost: $475 per person twin share. Single supplement add $70
