WORKSHOPS

I am a qualified teacher with decades of experience teaching adults in workshop situations. 

My passion is in working one-on-one with committed artists, to help them discover their own personal voice and to urge them forward in their art journey, regardless of their chosen media.

My main focus in teaching is in fostering an atmosphere of open exploration, risk and discovery...”

There will be ample demonstrations and presentations about abstraction, design, colour and developing your own personal voice. Participants will have plenty of time to paint and there will be opportunity for one-on-one mentoring.

This workshop could take your artwork to the next level!

Morning Teas will be provided each day and we cater for most dietary requests. Please let us know your requirements on registration. Bring your own lunch.
