Working with water
Join Peter Griffen in his vibrant studio for a weekend of hands-on painting and drawing. Enjoy the freedom to experiment, take risks and free up your painting and drawing. Peter will encourage you to push the boundaries of your imagination and painting in a free form abstract or semi abstract way.
Working on the theme of water, and referencing works from the exhibition 'In one drop of water', students will explore the significance of poetry, symbols and images of water in art. Work with chance and let the mind flow with the instinctive thoughts that will be associated with the concept of the theme.
Diversion and distraction will be encouraged allowing each participant to pursue their own unique image making at their own pace. The theme of ‘water” may be a starting point leading to landscape, surrealism or conceptual art.
On Friday at 11am, meet Peter in the members lounge at the Gallery with a discussion and tour of 'In one drop of water'. This will finish at about 1pm. At 9.30am on Saturday and Sunday meet at Peter’s Leichhardt studio.
Morning tea, prepared on the premises, will be served, followed later by a gourmet lunch with wine.
Acrylic paint, brushes and acid-free cartridge paper are supplied. Bring your own brushes, paper and other materials to paint on (eg canvas) if you wish. Aprons are available or bring your own.
