Christine runs regular art workshops, usually at  at Lennox Arts Collective, but now that we are in isolation due to Covid – 19, the classes and workshops will be on the Zoom platform.

This starts on Wednesday, 1st April at 10am. Christine will host a face to face interactive session for an hour (10-11am) and will work with you painting along or simply discussing the work you are doing. Initially it will run for 4 sessions on successive Wednesdays ($40.00) so that you can work on your artwork in between classes and by the end of the 4 weeks, will have completed an artwork. You can also book one on one sessions.

The Exploring Landscape Workshop scheduled for 11th April will also happen in a similar format, but will be one session on Zoom with follow up as required ($20). Please contact me to book in for these classes.

‘I hope you will join me in a happy, creative atmosphere!’

Painting and drawing the view around you is a favourite artists’ subject. Have you ever wished you could take a memory of a landscape with you – and not just in a photograph? To really absorb and experience the view, making an artwork will help you to really ‘see’ the scene. You can buy tickets here.

10 – 11am    $20.00            Contact Christine for more information

U’d be carrying a huge bag of it with u woodnt u, wat do u take with u with yr visual diary?! Its just i lost all my visual diaries & different types of art work ive done along the way, aswell as $100 dollars worth of art & craft stuff due 2 a r’ship breakdown, anyway enough of all that. Its just that i haven’t done any type of art for about 3yrs & i do miss terribly but the thought of starting over againg is daunting 2 me!! And i dont know where 2 start, i am a self taught artist & i do a bit of drawing & painting but i feel im a better drawer though. Anyway im open 2 any suggestions or ideas u may have, thanks 4 reading my comment!

    1. Hi Kylie, Thank you so much for getting in touch. I am sorry to hear that you lost your work but I would like to encourage you to keep faith and start drawing and painting again. I use a visual diary that is only A5 size and fits into my handbag. I also carry a black gel pen, pencil and eraser for quick sketches. I have a backpack which I take if I think I will have the opportunity to do a bit more. I have a toiletry bag which holds a small watercolour paint set and tubes of gouache paint. I have a collapsible water pot, carry a water bottle and my brushes are the type where you can fill the handles with water. I can carry A4 pad of paper and/or a 30 x 30cm pad in the backpack too. I am running a workshop on travel drawing/painting on the 7th December at Lennox Head if you are interested.
      Best wishes with your art! Christine
