Ink On Yupo


Art Workshop

 

with Tracey Miller


5 June 

10 - 4pm

Studio 2

Cost $140

Bookings www.traceymillerart.com/workshops

 

 

Alcohol inks create vibrant transparent color unlike any other medium and form lovely patterns within your painting.

Alcohol Ink is a highly pigmented and quick-drying medium applied by pouring, brushing, or stamping on a non-porous surface such as Yupo. The vibrant colours of the ink intermingle creating unique textural effects, often leading to unexpected results. 

Our class will begin with a demonstration of techniques of pouring, brushing and creating textures with inks and other materials. The remaining time will be spent discovering the unique possibilities of working with alcohol inks on Yupo, with ample time to complete a few paintings. Each participant will leave with several experimental pieces. 

Tracey has many years of experience guiding beginner and intermediate artists in creating pieces they proudly cherish. This workshop is perfect for those who just don’t have the time to commit to a full class term OR want to try something new.

 

Included: Tuition, inks and paper, morning tea & coffee.

 

Please bring: Your own apron, coffee cup, lunch and enthusiasm!

Masks to be worn by all participants - We require all those who attend our workshops to be fully vaccinated

Explore Bookbinding

with Edith Csontos &

Avril Makula

 

11 June 2022

Cost:   $140 including materials and morning tea 

Bookmaking in general forms an important conjunct to the practice of many artists.

As the name suggests, accordion books (also known as concertinas) are those that open and close in multiple folds like the musical instrument. Concertina structures are favoured for their sculptural potential and ability to be displayed easily.

The permutations are many and varied: a long piece of paper folded evenly and stacked; a concertina with pockets or incorporating sewn sections; a back-to-back concertina; a double concertina; a lepporello. Their versatility affords almost unlimited scope. 

In this one-day workshop we will begin by learning a few basic terms used in bookbinding, practicing how to accurately fold a concertina book, then make some of the many variations. You can make your books from blank paper as maquettes to keep as reference, but this is a great opportunity to utilise leftover proofs, prints and drawings to give them new life.

Discover the connection between the ‘character’ and the ‘face’

Workshop begins with quick warm up sketches to explore general proportions and structures of the human skull, followed by a look at some compositional possibilities that the sitter and surroundings may offer; Day 2: more sustained and in depth studies of the head and/or whole or part figure.

Noel has been exhibiting and teaching for 30 years, including 9 years as head of the Drawing Department at the National Art School, Sydney

Mixed Media in Contemporary Painting Workshop
with Judith White

9 & 10 July 2022

9.30 - 4.00pm

Cost $250 BDAS members, $290 non members

1911-06_Sentinel_2.jpeg

The workshop will range from semi- abstract to pure abstract using creative ideas in a mixed media process.

Judith will be demonstrating technical solutions for you to follow, with an emphasis on finding your own visual language. 

 

Bring a photo of a building in the landscape ie. a farm shed, or homestead (not too exotic!) in a print form. Best not to use your phone as it’s too difficult.

The colour doesn’t have to be accurate.

 

This is a great workshop in letting go, exploring new ways to capture an image, making expressive marks and creating your own semi-abstracted language and style

She enjoys sharing the magic of this medium with others, ensuring students can work at their own particular level - rediscover the excitement of the ”flow” & create fresh and vibrant work.

 

In this workshop students can explore some new innovative techniques using mixed media with watercolour, and fully explore the dynamic effects of light and darks to make paintings “sing”. 

 

Gillian has been exhibiting and teaching for 45 years and holds a B.A.VA. Dip Ed.
