Workshop Report - August 2017

A few of us met on Sunday 30 July to draw horses at the Pony Club. It was a beautiful day but the car park became very crowded with sports people later on, so if you come next time, try and get there before 9am. Don’t forget our members can park in our “Loading Areas” in front of Yurara or inside the Pony Club. We chose to draw in the holding and preparation areas this time, and had more success drawing the horses while they were relatively still.

We have had some changes in our workshop plans. We have asked Gloria Clay to hold a one day Mixed Media workshop for us on 30 September. We hope this will interest some of our Yurara members and members of the public who have not tried mixed media in their paintings before or who would like to get some new inspiration. Gloria says:

“LAYER UPON LAYER - This workshop is about layering a range of media to create a composition that follows design principles. During the layering process you will develop an understanding of the functions and qualities of each medium, while focusing on using print in a composition. Due to the constraints of time, the workshop will be very directed. My aim is to stimulate and encourage new lines of thought with which you might experiment, and incorporate in your general painting.”

Reflections Workshop - 21-22 May 2016

This workshop was really worth the time and money spent. Penny was delightful, extremely knowledgeable and a thoughtful and kind but firm tutor. We all learned a lot more about seeing the refractions and reflections in glass and metal objects, as well as how the light is reflected from flatter surfaces such as pottery.
