WEDNESDAY:   29th January, 2020


This untutored group focuses on both the nude and clothed human form, giving the opportunity to work with any range of drawing or painting media (including oils) on figurative and occasional portrait studies.  Male and female models are used within a flexible but structured program, including a range of ‘warm up’ and short to long poses – in some sessions a pose could last three hours. 

The group is suitable for artists wishing to enhance their understanding of the human form and to experiment or develop drawing techniques.  Previous knowledge of painting and drawing is necessary for participants.  The group operates over the year in line with the school  term.

VENUE:                Kiama Scout Hall, Kiama Harbour, Blowhole Point, Kiama

TIME:                    Wednesdays 1:30 – 4:30pm (in line with the school  terms)

The 2019 ‘Drawing and Painting the Human Form’ group had a very successful end of year review of members’ works.

There was an improvement across the group with a range of works presented from quick sketches to more resolved paintins and drawings in a variety of media.

Coordinator, Tony Hull, weas very pleased with the group’s progress.

















A very happy new year to you all. I hope you navigated your way through the terrible bush fires safely. 

For our first term of classes for 2020, I am pleased to be able to offer you a one-day workshop entitled “Introduction to Coloured Pencils” and a term of 4 x one-day classes called “Drawing and Painting from Nature”.

 Flyers describing these events are included in this newsletter and I hope they will appeal to a number of KAS members.

The one-day coloured pencil workshop scheduled for 5th February is a highly informative and practical day, when attendees will experience different ways of using both regular and watercolour pencils to achieve lovely results. A great opportunity to get out those coloured pencils you may, or may not have used for some time and to get to appreciate their value as an increasingly popular and highly credible medium. Indeed, the overall winner of the KAS annual exhibition in 2019, the exquisite painting of  a beautifully carved saddle, was rendered in coloured pencils!


Peter continues……

Then, for those of you wishing to refine your observation, drawing and painting skills, the “Drawing and Painting from Nature” classes will provide you with the opportunity to experiment with a variety of mediums, or to express yourself in your favourite medium, drawing inspiration from nature.

Regardless of your personal approach and style of painting, this series of classes invites you to grow as an artist through developing your existing skills and by introducing you to some methodologies you may not have previously experienced. Suitable for both experienced and newer artists, it offers an opportunity for you interact with the natural world in an intimate and nourishing way. I do hope you can join us.   Limit of 10 participants.
