Two classes to choose
from in term 1 2022
Term 1
TERM DATES: TUESDAY STUDIO CLASS    Feb 1 to March 29
                  WEDNESDAY ZOOM SESSION   Feb 2 to March 30
Both Classes on offer run for 8 weeks - with a 1 week break in the middle. Please see this updated copy from the website.
I'm really looking forward to starting this slightly more challenging format of classes and the resulting personal paintings. I hope you can join us.
Term 1  -
-STUDIO:- Mornington - Private Studio
Lyn will illustrate the method and the reason or steps involved, for each painting and will be there with you as you work on your paintings, discuss any issues that you encounter and/or individual assessment along the way and at the lesson's end.
ZOOM:- Anywhere with an internet connection.
This term, once again is a stand alone term, that is, it is not linked to previous terms. Each of the painting lessons has a learning focus that is explored for two weeks. The 1st, 3 hour session is the main demonstration and discussion session, for the painting subject before you get to work. Start work at your own pace in the lesson, then using your private web access to the study demonstrations to check on a process or re-watch as much as you like. The next Wednesday session will be from 10 to 12. It is an assessment of your work so far and any issues worked on if appropriate. In this session we look at your second, chosen subject. It is to put your learning into practice. This is the important 'consolidation of learning' step from the demonstrated painting. A second painting of your own or from Lyn's reference will give you a chance to draw the processes learnt in a slightly new, more personal situation i.e your own painting. Send this finished painting to Lyn as soon as it is finished for further assessment.

Mornington Peninsula Pre-Summer School

our 6th Annual 3 day workshop en plein air

and Paint Down Under Studio located at 77A Barkly St Mornington
next dates
Fri, Sat, Sun 4th, 5th and 6th Nov 2022
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
$250 for 3 days ($220 early bird price if booked by Sept 5, 2022) 
For interstate or distant participants there is a good variety of accommodation nearby.
Further information and on line booking can be made on
