Expressive Landscapes in Charcoal and Mixed Media

Sat March 14 - Sun March 15

A two-day artists workshop focusing on urban landscapes to learn drawing and painting skills with mixed media.

Saturday 14th March

The first half of day one is at Gang Gang Gallery and will incorporate informative demonstrations on ‘pein air’ techniques and suitable materials to use. Participants will then have the opportunity to practice useful techniques before putting these practical skills to use at selected Lithgow urban landscapes.

Sunday 15th March

On the second day, participants will develop artworks based on ‘plein air’ drawings, photographs and notes from day one. Learn how to Integrate ideas about creating expressive works using charcoal and mixed media.

At the end of the first day, participants will have a better understanding about the materials to use and how to pinpoint what to draw when working ‘plein air’. On the second day, students will be able to connect their ideas and studies from day one with inventive techniques using mixed media, creating an artwork or series of works.

*This weekend workshop can be attended on one day or two.

For best results both days are recommended.
