Service Description

Do you love to paint landscapes and en plein air or would like to learn, or just loosen up your style? Join us for a weekend in beautiful Huskisson on the shores of Jervis Bay for a weekend of painting. This is a tutored workshop for all skill levels from beginners through to experienced artists, using mixed media and a range of processes to capture the beauty and essence of our surrounds. Susan will demonstrate the skills we will be practising and assist you in developing your own unique artistic style. We will be based in a classroom at the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum, where the surrounding area provides a variety of subject matter and inspiration for your artworks. We will also have the opportunity to view the current exhibition of Nigel Helyer and Akira Komada. We begin with some quick exercises, experimenting with a variety of materials to relax and loosen up your approach. You will learn how to quickly compose scenes that focus on the play of light and shadow, lines and form, and then use your smaller studies to create larger artworks that reflect the elements that you have been drawn to in this lovely environment. As we will be dealing with changing light, painting plein air will develop your ability to reduce detail and only paint what is essential to represent the subject matter. If you would like to get out of your comfort zone and try new approaches to your arts practice, then join us for a lovely weekend of creativity. Each day starts at 10.00am and finishes at 4pm, however these times can be flexible according to your needs and interests through our discussions each day. What to bring... All mixed media materials are supplied, however, bring - an A4 sketch book for the exercises we will be doing - your preferred drawing and painting materials/brushes if you wish - 4 x rectangle canvases or boards at least 8 x 10inches or as larger (Susan will also have small boards with her if you wish to use these). - drinks, snacks and lunch. - a folding chair, hat and sunscreen - comfortable shoes - an easel or pochade box ***Susan will be using mixed media for the exercises and small studies (watercolours, acrylics, inks, oil crayons, charcoal, Caran D'Arche water soluble crayons, and oils for painting on the boards.
