Saturday 30 September 10.30-3.30
Shoalhaven Regional Gallery, Berry St., Nowra
Join Kim Grivas for a one day Oil Painting workshop focusing on capturing the effect of painting clear glass with flowers or foliage in water.
"Painting glass objects is a fun and challenging and requires careful observation and attention to detail. You need to capture both the solidity and the transparency of the glass, as well as the reflections and distortions it creates."
Kim Grivas is an Australian artist who specializes in oil painting of flowers and interiors. She uses a restricted palette and paints within the light to capture the atmosphere, emotions, and delight that flowers invoke. She also adds elements of her home, garden, and favourite scarves to bring a sense of familiarity and personality to her paintings.
You can see some of her works at the AK Bellinger Gallery or join her workshop on oil painting at the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery.

Col: "It was an absolute pleasure to do an art workshop for such a keen and happy group.
The venue is a superb location to hold such days and hopefully we can hold many more in the future.
In addition to that, the effort the participants put in was sensational and their work is a testament to that."
From Denise: " Thank you so much for an informative, enjoyable workshop with Col. We loved working with the charcoal to free our drawing hands up. Some of us were new to pastels but Col made us feel comfortable and assisted us well. We were mesmerised by how beautiful his work is and his loose technique. Everyone in the group got on well and had an excellent weekend."

Keith Dewell's 'Elements of Drawing' workshop has concluded following a fine weekend of pencil craft over the first weekend in June.
Participants learnt how a systematic approach to drawing shapes is the basis of good drawing skills that will last your lifetime. Keith took his keen students through a path of simplifying shapes, working from big to small shapes, and passed on knowledge of how to incorporate corrections if something isn't quite right.
The workshop covered both still life as well as portraiture, as witnessed by the photos below.
"I had the great pleasure of conducting an oil painting workshop over the weekend of February 11th and 12th. The study piece was a medium size composition covering many facets of a typical seascape scene. I feel that the participants enjoyed the weekend and gained useful knowledge, insight and skills required to produce competent artworks of their own. I was pleased to see the results of their efforts and it became obvious that the students had absorbed much of the information that was constantly being divulged throughout the weekend. The class consisted of people with a wide range of experience, from beginners to those familiar with working with oil paints. We explored a few different techniques and even created our skies using our own imaginations, to avoid becoming slaves to the reference photo. Overall, it was a most enjoyable weekend with lovely people. A special thank you to Roslyn and Andrew Wilson for sharing their beautiful property and studio."
The photos below provide a glimpse of how successful and enjoyable the workshop was. The Art Society looks forward to Martin's next workshop, but we will let him have a breather first ...
Participants loved this workshop creating beautiful artworks featuring birds in nature. November 2022.
