Join Peter Griffen in his studio for a weekend of hands-on experimental, abstract and semi-abstract painting.
On Friday at 11am, meet Peter in the members lounge at the Gallery with a discussion and tour of 'Noŋgirrŋa Marawili: from my heart and mind', 'Melanesian art: redux', 'Tony Tuckson: the abstract sublime'. You are encouraged to sketch and/or take photographs to use as inspiration in the workshop. This will finish at about 1pm.
On Saturday and Sunday, the workshop times at Peter's and Denise Lithgow's Leichhardt studio are 9.30am – 4pm. 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.
