Event Series Event Series: Portrait Painting with Kim Harding

Portrait Painting with Kim Harding

Sat 17 August at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Getting started for the 2024 Mudgee Portrait Prize.

Kim Harding’s oil-based portraits were much admired at the inaugural Mudgee Portrait Prize and have since been featured in Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine. Kim will deliver a series of two workshops to help local artists create a work for this year’s Mudgee Portrait Prize. In the first workshop (17 August) Kim will share her process with participants and help them to get started on their entry.

In the second workshop (31 August) Kim will provide feedback and direction to artists that have a portrait in progress and revise techniques from the first workshop.

This workshop is open to adults 18 years and over only. A parallel series of workshops for children under 18 will be facilitated by international cartoonist David Squires.

All levels of skill and experience welcome.
