Portrait Painting Workshop


  • Aarwun Gallery Shop 11 Federation Square, Gold Creek Canberra, ACT. 2913 Australia (map)

Join us for a fun and relaxed weekend of painting the portrait in oils, working from life. The workshop will be focused on facilitating beginners to oil painting, but artists of all levels are warmly welcomed to join us and to work at their own pace and enjoy the atmosphere of creativity and learning. Tutoring will be catered to the skill level of the individual.
Students will learn how to observe proportion, tone and colour to create a life like rendering of the subject in oils on canvas. Through a series of demonstrations and discussion, the tutors will cover how to prepare a ground for painting, how to mix colours, how to use solvents and mediums and how to apply the paint. Students will receive a printed and illustrated summary of the techniques and artistic principles covered in the workshop for their future referral.
