WHAT’S ON IN AUGUST:

TUESDAY, 1st AUGUST: HOLLY  EVA  GAY – DEMONSTRATION Come and join Holly at the Coach House for an afternoon of inspiration. Holly is a modern expressionist painter from Wollongong. ” I paint as if I’m seeing things for the first time. I lose myself in my imagination and escape to a place where I feel free. On goes the paint, rich in colour, twisting and turning in all directions, wiping, pressing, stamping, layering, drawing, writing words and smudging them out.”     Demonstration begins at 1.00pm so please be seated before then and stay  for afternoon tea and a chat at the conclusion of the demonstration.

Introduction to Australian Impressionism – ANDREA HOPE

Introduction to Australian Impressionism Have you been to see the Tom Roberts exhibition in Canberra? Would you like to know more about Roberts and the other Australian Impressionists? Andrea Hope is offering a three week art appreciation program which explores the Impressionist period of art in Australia from the late 1880s through to 1915 (sometimes known as the ‘Heidelberg School’). Discussion will include: ~ the context for the move to an Impressionistic style; ~ how Impressionism in Australia was influenced by overseas artists; but also how it differed; ~ the “Heidelberg School”; ~ the 9 x 5 exhibition; and ~ the lives of some of the key artists of the period. The cost of the program is $95 or $35 per session. The program includes selected reading material, images for review, videos and discussion during the two hour sessions. No prior knowledge is required, just an interest in learning more about art during this period. The evening program will be scheduled for March/April, depending on enrolments. T o register your interest, or for more information, email Andrea on kiamaartgallery@gmail.com , or phone...

CLASS NEWS:

All classes are in full swing with wonderful paintings  being produced, new techniques being learnt and friendships being made. DRAWING AND PAINTING THE HUMAN FORM GROUP: This group moved to their new venue at the Kiama Scout Hall in February and things are going swimmingly. (Not literally even though it is by the water!). The Hall has sufficient space for the members to set up easels and their drawing or painting equipment and materials. The light in the hall is good and storage and other facilities are also very good. All in all we are settling in very nicely. We have had a good range of male and female models this term, providing some great and focused drawing and painting by all members. Even though the group is almost full with members, there is some turnover in the group, and we are quite prepared to put potential members on a waiting list. I would encourage anyone interested in joining to give me their details. I can be contacted by phone on – 42639953 or email at – tonyhull@iprimus.com.au.                             TONY HULL   THURSDAY’S WATERCOLOUR and ACRYLIC CLASSES: We are so lucky to have such a vibrant Art Society with so much going on. I love going to the Coach House each Thursday to teach my 2 classes. The afternoon acrylics class is ‘chockers’ at the moment, which is fantastic. I would really like some more students in my watercolour class in the morning.    Kathy with her watercolour class (top) and acrylic class .   Contact me on...

Acrylics Class News from Kathy Karas

The acrylics class on a Thursday afternoon has been going well and we have completed several paintings this term. Students who have been coming for most of the year have gained benefit and confidence from learning some good techniques and I am very pleased with the paintings that everyone has produced.
