Ravenswood Women in Art Workshops

12 + 13 Feb

Event dates

Description

As part of Stockland's sponsorship of the Ravenswood Australia Women in Art Prize, Stockland Birtinya are hosting a series of free Women in Art sessions with local Sunshine Coast artist Alison Mooney. Alison is an artist who invites the unexpected into her studio. Her practice began in realism and is now nestled in her world of translucent rainbow tubes, on canvas. Movement, contrast, colour and energy are regular elements of her work.

Join her in this workshop series to step a little further into the unexpected ... or come along to try something completely new!

Workshop 1 : Larger than life
Wednesday 12 Feb 6 pm - 8 pm 

Explore the world of still life painting on a grand scale with artist Alison Mooney and large inflatables! The first workshop held on Wednesday 12th February from 6pm-8pm is a guided still life session with large inflatables and fun props to paint from. Participants will be shown how to choose what section to paint. A small section of it? The whole thing? Alison will help you decide what kind of colours, shadows, highlights to choose in your piece on canvas. It’s fast and loose, or slow and detailed if you prefer… no two paintings will be the same! No experience necessary, these are designed to be fun, friendly, welcoming and celebrate women in art. Participants will be provided with a complimentary canvas, paint and a smock.

Workshop 2 : Free Flow
Thursday 13 Feb 6 pm - 8 pm 

The second workshop held on Thursday 13th from 6pm-8pm is a free flow workshop. The focus is on the process rather than the outcome and you’ll be thrown a couple of fun curve balls along the way.

Enforced canvas rotation, compulsory yellow paint for 10 minutes, for example. What magic can you create when there’s no destination in mind and just the fun, challenge and fearless decision making?

Decisions will be made quickly and in response to directions (ie colour, blindfolded, style). By removing all control over what goes on the canvas, an incredible creation will emerge. No experience necessary, these are designed to be fun, friendly, welcoming and celebrate women in art. Participants will be provided with a complimentary canvas, paint and a smock.
