Place: Leeton NSW Australia. All workshops will be conducted at my home in my studio space, coffee and snacks will be provided. These classes are very relaxed and a very nice social environment too (once you have booked your workshop I will send you the address).
ALL MATERIALS WILL BE PROVIDED, you just need to bring some small items.
Items to bring:
Lunch for the day class (coffee and biscuits will be provided).
Bring your old pencils that are lying around.
A putty rubber.
Some round brushes one small and one medium (used for blending with solvent if you choose to).
If you know what PanPastels are and you have some then bring them along too.
If you prefer working upright then please bring your own easel.
Complete beginners and intermediate members are welcome. The workshop term will take you through the process of using PanPastels much like you would use acrylic paints to paint a bird of your choice, the pencils will be used for detailing of the eyes, lips and ears. You may bring along any reference you choose, it can be of a family member or celebrity or anyone (with their permission of course) and I also have quite a few references available too, try and pic a reference with as much detail as possible. Here is one of my online YouTube videos if you would like an idea of what we will be doing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dUmxlwi2bw&index=5&list=PLveDolHVgayTO-CKhgr88yrjIjLcoZm27 (PLEASE NOTE: We are not going to get as detailed and specific as the video, we are going to be loose and have fun, we'll try and bring your own style out of your work). PanPastels are so user friendly you can manipulate and change it over and over again until you have found the happy spot.
We will be working big, you can choose to fill your entire sheet or have more of a background (30cm x 45cm UART 240 sanded paper). Please note only one sheet will be provided and if you require more you can purchase it through me for $10 per sheet. Once you are finished with your painting I will show you how you can cut a matt board frame for it and attach it to a foam backing and then place it in a large protective sleeve until you choose to frame it or simply varnish it. I will be guiding you through the entire process as much as I can and I guarantee you will have a lovely time.
