Art Groups

The Canberra Art Workshop convenes untutored Art Groups throughout the year. 

The Groups are either subject or medium-specific and cover the full range of visual artistic expression and media. Media focused groups include printmaking, watercolour and pastel. In the Experimental and ExploARTive groups, participants use a variety of media. There are seven life drawing / portraiture groups to choose from. Participants also use a variety of media in these groups. 

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. Art Group participants must be financial members of CAW. 

Members and non-members can see this introductory page. Clicking on a group below will take members to the booking pages for each Art Group. 

Bookings are only accepted online. Weekly booking for ALL art groups will be listed 7 days prior to the start date for each class and removed on the date of that class. The next available date will then show. This will continue for the entire year. 

Non-members will only see a ‘Not available’ message and will not be able to book.
