Marian Caccianiga will be holding an acrylic workshop during our regular Tuesday Art Group, you can come along and participate or just do your usual thing. For those interested in participating and trying something different the workshop will be held over two days Tuesday the 4th and Tuesday the 11th of February. Marian will cater for all levels of experience from beginners to seasoned artists, she will show us how to use lots of glazing with our acrylics. You will need to bring a canvas no smaller than 30cm X 40cm (rectangle or square) prepared with a coat of Gesso or white paint. Bring your own acrylic paints and brushes or you can use those supplied. If you have an interesting piece of pottery etc suitable for still life bring it along also.

In 2012 we applied to the Swan Hill Rural City Council for funding to do a Mural of the old Swan Hill Wharf, at our second attempt in 2013 we were successful. The large board that we will be working on is at Joan Holmes Studio at Tooleybuc and we will be working on it during Feb/March anyone from the group who would like to be involved would be most welcome.
