Featured Artist June 2024: Student works

 

Exhibiting works from two workshops - Pastel for Beginners / Abstract or Still Life in Acrylics - facilitated by Karin Brear.  Workshops funded by the NSW State Government under the Stronger Country Communities Fund.

"A wonderful group of six ladies attended my two-day Pastel for Beginners Workshop in April at Woody Head Hall, Iluka. Despite miserable weather, the ladies enjoyed themselves, chatting away and making new friends. After some warm up exercises, showing different strokes for pastels, different kinds of papers and sticks - hard, soft etc, they painted an apple to practice strokes and a grey scale.

I also welcomed six eager and enthusiastic ladies to my two-day Abstract / Still Life in Acrylic Workshop in May, also at Woody Head. The weather was perfect. The ladies did a warm up session where their paper was divided into four, and away they went creating with paint, Posca pens, oil, pastel, soft pastel and all sorts of different mediums and stencils. Such diverse works.

Thanks everyone for attending my workshops, it was very enjoyable for me teaching and meeting you all. I look forward to seeing you again." Karin Bear.

On display at the Emporium for the month of June.
