CAIRNS ARTescape 2014

CAS 2014Last week I was  a tutor at the 9th annual Cairns ARtescape, an initiative of the Cairns Art Society. This was my third workshop and once again it was a most enjoyable and rewarding experience. For the second year I was charged with teaching the Beginners’ class, the aim being to prepare my students to undertake one of the courses available next year.

The week was composed of exercises in a variety of skills culminating in an excursion that produced a series of small artworks accompanied by an artist’s statement.

While the week focussed on planning, drawing, painting and writing skills, the underlying aim was to get everyone to see and experience the value of ideas and research as essential components of successful art making.

A wonderful group of highly motivated students made for another get teaching experience. Google the Cairns Art Society site and checkout the photos on display. Why not join us next year?
