Art work­shops teach pain­ters to loosen up

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

ART en­thu­si­asts of the Whit­sun­days, here is your chance to build those brush strokes.

Lo­cal artist Wendy Eriks­son is pass­ing on her im­pres­sive skills with a Still Life Mixed Me­dia Con­tem­po­rary Art work­shop at the Art Whit­sun­day Gallery.

Ms Eriks­son said the goal was to get peo­ple to be freer with their artis­tic style.

“They can learn how to paint in a dif­fer­ent way and it teaches them tech­niques to loosen them up,” she said.

“It’s a cre­ative art work­shop where it’s based on still life and mixed me­dia with acrylic.”

Ms Eriks­son said the classes were suit­able for all skill lev­els.

“From begin­ners to the ad­vanced; it’s for any­body,” she said.

The mul­ti­me­dia as­pect of the class also gives par­tic­i­pants the chance to work with many dif­fer­ent styles such as pen­cils, crayons and paint.

All uten­sils are sup­plied, although artists are re­quired to bring their own can­vas.
