Landscapes with a DifferenceAcrylic paints
Places are limited to 12 students for all workshops.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY
21–22 November 2020
A great start for both beginners and those with experience to free up and experience painting expressively, utilizing many fun techniques. You will learn how to make a response to what you see as well as different ways to approach an impressionistic landscape. Paint with a palette knife, rag, brush, paper towel and cotton buds. Layer with ink, acrylic, collage and oil pastels or acrylic pens.
About the tutor
Ann is an art teacher working out of ArtisAnn Studio 40 in Leeton, NSW. She runs 3 classes of 10 students per week. Her expressive, contemporary style has been awarded many prizes in art shows around the country. Ann works with many mediums to produce her mixed media works. She likes to work quickly and intuitively, layering printing, collage, drawing, paint and pastel until she is happy with the piece. Living in the country and traveling around the world have had a huge influence on Ann’s work. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the style of her work.
