Course description
Two art tutors
Level:-  For artists with some degree of proficiency in their medium. (pastel/acrylic/watercolour)
Why venture out into the real world? Is it a venture or adventure?
There are many popular art tours happening all over the world offering to enrich the travel and share the experience of painting together.   
This workshop is for artists who are uncomfortable with the concept of painting on site.
They may feel exposed, inadequate or simply frustrated with their results.  Or maybe they just want to feel prepared.
This is time to learn how to choose, set up and capture the scene.
Lyn will demonstrate. We will paint on site in the morning then bring the work back to the studio each day
to assess results and decide what the next step might be and possibilities of improving.
It will aim to sharpen your decisions in all stages and allow you to relax with the process.
The afternoons will spring from the morning’s painting.— what is the next step?   We will all possibly have a different ‘next step’.
Lyn Mellady and Julie Goldspink will take this course and split to a max no 5 people in a group
$220 for 3 days
For interstate or distant participants there is a good variety of accommodation nearby.
Deposits (fully covid refundable) are now open. Numbers are strictly limited and a places will be reserved in the order of deposits received.
