Art Classes and Workshops

by Jun 8, 20200 comments

My art classes and workshop timetable has been updated. I am looking forward to the new program and to see people back in Face to Face art classes at Lennox Arts Collective Gallery. It has been an interesting time for all of us during lockdown! On a positive note, I have upskilled and am really enjoying holding the Zoom classes. I have found that it has stretched me to do much more than purely painting and overseeing class participants, it has encouraged me to explore further my love of art history and unusual art techniques. Zoom has allowed me to incorporate these elements via Powerpoint sessions within the Zoom classes. This leads to more Q and A and has been a ‘hit’ with participants.

Here is the new timetable for both Zoom and Face to Face art classes. I hope you will join me in some format!

Christine’s Art Classes/Workshops June – September 2020

Wednesdays 10 – 1pm – Art Classes at Lennox Arts Collective. You can come and have tuition or work on your own artwork with facilitation if required. $35.00 per class. Please book with Christine  0415230470 or

Tuesdays Zoom classes 10 -11am – Note that Zoom classes are recorded, so if you book and pay, you will still have access to the class to view later. We cover a variety of topics, it is interactive, so there is plenty of opportunity for Q and A, usually a brief exercise and a powerpoint with information giving on the topic. $20 per class or $40 for a block of four classes.

Some of the most stunning artworks are made by Indigenous people or draw their inspiration from ethnic art styles. we will examine various ethnic artworks and use their inspiration to create our own. 

Saturday 8th August – Using Pattern and Texture in your Art

Pattern and texture can really ‘make or break’ a work of art. In this class we will play with products that create texture and also incorporate decorative pattern and design into your artwork

Saturday 22nd August – Making new from old – reworking an existing artwork

We all have artworks that for some reason are not working. In this class we will work at resolving an artwork or completely reworking it. No need to even have an old piece, you can start from scratch if you wish!
