Saturday & Sunday  8th & 9th of June, 10am-3pm both days
$245 including all materials | Barista coffee | complimentary light lunch.

In this two day workshop you will create your own 18 x 18 inch oil painting of a peaceful landscape to take home. Karina will guide you step by step through the whole process and students of all abilities are welcome.

During this workshop you will paint your own version of “Sanctuary”, a beautiful scene that leads you through the trees, into the distance. You will learn how to work with oil paints, solvents and mediums, in a two-layer process. The workshop will include an introduction to colour mixing and teach you the importance of hard and soft edges. Karina will show you how to add personality to your painting with different methods of mark–making, and by using glaze and impasto.
