Upcoming Workshops

Kerryn Finch Workshop: Expressive Still Life

Sat 6th May 10am-3pm @ Woorinen South Community Hall

$60 members $80 guests

Her style has developed over time, and Kerryn describes it as being a bit like her own language. She paints the things that have meaning to her, whether that’s a packet of chips, or a CD cover or some flowers from her garden, it’s her unique view of the world.

#Materials List:

# If you do not have materials MASH has plenty in the cupboard to share!

  • Paper for drawing sketches of composition, this might be a sketch book or similar.
  • Drawing materials eg: grey lead pencils, charcoal, white pencils.
  • A variety of sizes of paintbrushes suitable for acrylic painting,
  • A canvas or two, or some heavy duty paper or card.
  • Palette knife, and a palette or two.
  • An easel, if you like I can bring some table easels, just let me know if these are required.
  • Empty jars for water, rags for cleaning, apron (optional)
  • masking tape, (not essential but handy)
  • Acrylic paints, colours I recommend as a basic starting point are
