Art Groups
The Canberra Art Workshop convenes untutored Art Groups, most of which operate weekly over four 10-week terms per year, following the ACT school year. Some groups continue during the holidays. The groups are managed by volunteer convenors. A limit of 12 participants per group (plus a model) has been imposed due to Covid-19 restrictions. Bookings are accepted online. Art Group participants must be financial members of CAW.
The Groups are either subject or medium-specific and cover the full range of visual artistic expression and media.  
Media focused groups include printmaking, water colour and pastel. In the experimental painting groups participants use a variety of media. There is a Term Fee of $50.00 per participant to cover studio rental, paid in advance each term.  
There are four life drawing groups and five portraiture groups to choose from. Participants also use a variety of media in these groups. There is a Sessional Fee of $15.00 per participant to cover studio rental and model fees, paid in advance of each session.
