Watercolour World with Miriam Ruberl

4th Thursday each month starting February 28th

Single session $45 payable to Tauranga Arts Society 1 week before session date

Before the invention of colour photography, watercolours in little blocks of naturally occurring hand-ground minerals in paintboxes were taken by artists into the field to “note” the colours they saw, as guides in their oil painting rendition of the “actual” work. Constable used incredibly tiny notebooks for the purpose.

One Day Workshop using Encaustic Techniques with Lynne Dara

Saturday June 1 2019  – 9 am till 4 pm

This course will cost $160.00 per person which includes all equipment

Lynne is offering a one day course to introduce you to the beauty and joy of working with hot bees wax medium, or encaustics as the ancients called this method.

The day will include an explanation about how to prepare and use hot bees wax coloured with oil paint. You will work with small boards to produce several pieces of encaustic art and in the process learn the basics of this method. This is a spontaneous method so you don’t have to prepare, or pre-think about what you will paint. Lynne will encourage you to just enjoy the wax and see what emerges.

Mixed Media Workshop with Miriam Ruberl

To be rescheduled later in the year

Mixed media is exactly what it says: putting together more than one medium in one piece of work. The scope is unlimited, and the opportunities for exploration and innovation wide open. The range of commercially successful artists who work in mixed media is surprising extensive and versatile approach.
