August: Ross Paterson Pastels
A very successful workshop was held at Tooleybuc and some beautiful work created!
FIRST TUESDAYS: September – Pastels
Members brought along their artwork from the Ross Paterson workshop and we shared pastels, techniques and ideas. The workshop was held at Neighbourhood house in the art room adjacent to the Men’s Shed. The space does not have much natural light and it was very dusty due to the woodwork next door and the ceramics.
FIRST TUESDAYS: October – Barbed Wire
Joy Jones led a fascinating workshop using barbed wire as the model. Members learned how to paint this Aussie icon using watercolour and gouache. For those who missed out Joy is willing to repeat the lesson on a future date. We were joined by some members from the Moulamein art group and its always great to meet & share ideas. Big thanks to Joy for sharing her knowledge.
