I’m back home in Tasmania after 2 wonderful weeks in Cairns., that include 5 days of tutoring at the annual Cairns ARTescape. This year for the first time, a ‘Beginners’ class was offered and my task was to prepare 11 eager students for next year’s workshop to enable them to enrol in one of 10 (or more)courses available in 2014.
I can honestly say that I have never enjoyed a workshop more than this one. From beginning to end it was a privilege to be part of what was a superbly organised and conducted Winter Art School. There were 11 tutors and 111 participants involved in a program that featured a variety of art disciplines.
Over the next 2 weeks I will publish a series of reports on my 5-day art course that included theory and practice with graphite pencil, coloured pencil, pastels and paint.
