Hi all 
Just a reminder that Lorri will be away from 28th Feb until 15th April.  Norma is currently looking after Petty Cash & morning tea supplies.Please make sure you book in for these two great workshops!  Call Judy if you have any other questions!!

March 4: Clay heads and objects with Di Giddings. 

$20 per person (members)  Non members $25

10am—4pm @ Woorinen South Community Hall, McCalman Street (behind pre school)

Please contact Helen McKerrow if you are coming.  M: 0422 636 597.  Email: ggmck4@bigpond.com

You will need a base for your sculpted head.  A nice fat piece of dowell screwed into a rectangular or square base works well.  The one in the images is approx 16cm high and on a base of approx 15cm x 20cm.  You can make it smaller.  Once the head is dry you can remove it & reuse your stand.

Alternately you could bring a piece of board and make a mask or something similar.

Paul’s workshops are fun and instructive.  Alternative uses for watercolours are explored in an explosion of colour!With Paul’s workshop you can break from the traditions of painting and develop an expressive skill set that will help develop more visual movement in your wet medium painting.  Paul’s aim in painting is to marry strong compositional methods with expressive qualities. He also develops rich textural elements by re-working finished painting with markers, pens and pencils.

Paul demonstrates his painting methods in a series of simple steps that participants can easily follow along. Participants can also take home an information sheet that outlines these steps for future reference as well.  Gain some new tips and tricks that will help your own artistic journey in a relaxed and creative environment. This workshop is suitable for both the beginner and experienced painter alike.  https://www.pauloswinart.com/

This will be a “pop up shop” exhibition with sales. It will be held at the Community Tree, Campbell Street Swan Hill on Friday 8th May 10-4 & Sat 9th May 9-1.  If you are submitting works then you must also agree to go on the roster to man the stall for at least 2 hours.  It is suggested that paintings are framed or on canvas with fixtures for hanging.  Smaller unframed works are acceptable if they have a mount and are wrapped in cellophane.  Other quality crafted items are also acceptable for this exhibition.  eg: handpainted cards, ceramics etc. 
10% of all works sold will be paid to the local Cancer support group. Payment for works sold, is made at the conclusion of the exhibition, when all works have been paid for. We will also be having a raffle with all proceeds going to the local cancer support group.  Donations of mother friendly items accepted.
