Workshops in 2017
Summery of Scratchboard 1 Day Workshop
May 20, 2017 Saturday
One day workshop.
Art Society of Phillip Island Inc.
This W/S was with a group of only one person who had worked on Scratchboard before (Colin), he has been a student to previous workshop with me, and his work has progressed very well. The rest of the group were all new, and a couple were non drawers - which was a challenge, but not impossible. It turned out to be a wonderful day, and thanks to John for providing a big supply of sausages for our students, so generous. Jill and Gay provided a natural sense for Scratchboard and I hope that they will continue with further instruction, their work showed real promise and skill. At the end of the day, the scratchboard world has more students. Although John left the class early due to work commitments, is keen to learn more, so generally the students just loved it.
What a delightful day, everyone did a different subject and some even managed to do two subjects, which really showed a keen eye and a excellent skill of drawing and excellent planning. Jill with her stunning Siamese and her second work was of a peacock - striking work. Gay's fish was just amazing, and her colour management was great. Di's beautiful gum flowers was lovely, Colin's horse is coming along great and so is Froney's Currawong bird, the shapes and line was really working.
Stratchboard is definitely a medium that requires a good level of drawing, and three of the students did find it a little frustrating, but did produce an image that they should be proud of and were keen to progress further. Really enjoyable.
Booked workshops for the balance of 2017 had to be rescheduled to 2018 due to serious hand injury of tutor.
