After a successful River of Art which showcased the diverse talents of so many in the Eurobodalla district, it also germinated a seed for many in wishing to learn how to paint. The South Coast Pastel Society is offering two wonderful opportunities in pastel painting, which will be held at the Batemans Bay Surf Lifesaving Club, George Bass Drive, Malua Bay.
The first is a one day Seascape workshop for artists with a medium knowledge of pastels and which will be held on Saturday 15th June. In this workshop Tricia will lead you through analysing wave movement, water effects, coastlines , wet sand, cresting waves and luminescence. Cost of the one day workshop is $80 members and $90 non members with only 2 places left bookings and registration is essential.
Still not sure but curious, or simply interested in how a master pastellist applies her talents to create an award winning piece, then come along and watch Tricia in action in this Sunday half day demonstration which commences at 9.30am sharp and concludes at 12 noon.
For bookings to either please contact Lyn Woolridge at email@example.com of phone 0448496998.
