UnchARTed Collective is hosting an exciting 'Learn to Paint Abstracts in an Afternoon' workshop on Saturday 29th August 2015.

This interactive workshop will run from 1pm to 4pm at the Mt Lawley Studio.

Artists Vicki Baker and Sioux Tempest will guide participants through this 3-hour workshop, exploring the principles and techniques required to create stunning works of art.

Ideal for all ages and all skill levels, this interactive workshop is designed to unlock one's natural artistic talent.

Participants will create three works during the workshop and importantly won't copy or imitate the greats, instead each participant will be encouraged to experiment with different techniques and develop their own unique style.

Vicki and Sioux will be on hand to offer guidance and assistance and will cover a range of design principles, including:

  • Application of paint

  • Different methods of applying paint without a brush

  • Different design elements for composition

  • Making and using a view finder

  • Isolating an area that will be recreated

    The workshop will be held in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere and all required materials will be provided, including boards, acrylic paints, brushes and high quality canvas.

    Participants should bring along their own pencil/pen and notebook/sketchbook.

    Coffee and cake will be served as part of the experience.

    The class will be limited to a small number of participants and early bookings are advised.

    To make a booking, please click here. The all inclusive price is $239 per person.

    Participants will also receive a 10% DISCOUNT storewide at the UnchARTed Collective shop on the day!
