Hosted by Atelier Crafers, 1 Cox Place, Crafers
During Aboriginal Reconciliation Week, we're hosting this indigenous Australian-inspired portrait workshop. The photograph is an example and is the work of Percy Leason (1889-1959). The full-day, workshop is hosted by award-winning South Australian artist, Trevor Newman and will explore the fundamentals of drawing the portrait as well as how to mix skin tones when painting in acrylics or oils.
You will learn all you need to know about drawing and portrait painting, in your choice of oils or acrylics, as well as colour-mixing, canvas preparation, and brushwork techniques.
Images will be provided on the day. Please refer to the below materials list for what you need to bring.
