This one-day workshop is aimed at artists wanting to further their expertise or brush up on their skills. Use a variety of subjects as inspiration, receive expert tuition, experiment with new materials and learn to combine different drawing techniques.
This weekend is designed for artists and will encourage participants to push the boundaries of their drawing skills. Travel to Marmong Point Marina for plein-air sketches, and return to the studio for more in-depth work toward finished artworks.
Please bring a hat, sunscreen and your own drawing materials.
During this weekend workshop, learn to look at plants in a whole new way.
