Mixed Media Workshop - gallery 2

Working with mixed media will be a fun three-hour, get down and dirty experience using a variety of mediums to create a flammable work. We will use images to draw from using collage, inks, charcoal, paint, bitumen and shellac. Working on paper the process will be creative, fun and satisfying for all artists from beginners to professional. It is never too late to learn new tricks!

On Friday 2 November renowned artist Vanessa Ashcroft will run a half day workshop for both Paint Presto participants and other interested members of the community. The Mixed Media three hour workshop will run from 9.30am – 12.30pm.

This wonderful opportunity to work and learn from Vanessa is not to be missed as there are only limited spaces available. Cost for the workshop is $40. Book you place here.

 

Floor Talk - Gallery 1

Vanessa will talk about her art practice, running two galleries, the business model and how art in all forms can change your life. Entering the art world later in life after owning a fashion label, child rearing and family commitments, discovering art was life altering and now totally fills Vanessa's life in many aspects. Not only picking up a brush, but seeing the world, colour and life differently. This talk will be inspirational, fun and straight from the heart. Let's talk art!

Cost for this floor talk $20, with limited spaces available.

Book you place here.
