PAINTING BEAUMARIS 

 

WORKSHOP OVER TWO SUNDAYS

10AM-1PM

In this series of painting lessons, local Artist Vivi Palegeorge will share her excitement and love of painting Beaumaris in acrylics or oils.


In the footsteps of Clarice Beckett and the Heidelberg school, Vivi will demonstrate how to identify the essence of our local landscape and capture light, by exploring colour, tone & painterly techniques.


Students will finish a painting in each of the two 3-hour sessions and be guided with how to compose, simplify and plan striking pieces of work.
