2 Day Weekend Mixed Media Workshop - with Melanie Davis

Postponed – We are hoping we may be able to now run this later in the year.  Will advise new dates.

Cost – $130.00 members/$150.00 non members

This workshop is to held at Short Street Studio between 10.00am – 4.00pm each day.

In this two day workshop we will be using mixed media to deconstruct traditional approaches to landscape painting.   There will be a focus on how to project the feeling of a place as opposed to a direct photographic representation.  The class will include exercises to loosen up the way that we draw and paint, before working towards a final piece.  Please feel free to bring sketches and photos to work from as well as any extra materials that you may wish to experiment with.

Places are limited so be quick.  Please enquire about availability before making payment which then secures your place in this exciting workshop.

For all enquires  please  email or Phone Roz Ledingham on 021 718 633
