Classes This Term

Workshop topics are updated regularly.

These sessions are designed to introduce you to new skills and ideas, as well as provide the inspiration you need to continue your new ‘hobby’ at home, long after the workshop is over. 

Held in Manly West near Wynnum, these Art Workshops aim to allow you the time needed to learn about a specific topic or Art media, without rushing through the content. By the end of most sessions, you will have a finished artwork to take home.

These workshops are perfect for those who are not able to commit time to my weekly classes and are also designed to compliment and extend on the content covered in the Art Mentoring Program. Absolute beginners are ALWAYS catered.

Art workshops aim to explore a variety of 2D and 3D Art media. Would you like to suggest a topic? Please email your requests to hello@studioyellow.com.au

 

I offer a 20 min free consultation to answer any questions you may have about my classes and programs.  Please contact me, Natalie, on 0404390443

Studio Yellow - Painted Paper Collage
Studio Yellow - Acrylic Painting

Acrylic Painting Techniques

I will show you how to use acrylic paints and a range of mediums and additives. Then you will have the opportunity to experiment with all the materials, so you can discover the affects you like the most, before using them to create a simple abstract or semi-abstract artwork based on an image you bring from home for inspiration or one of the pictures supplied.

Date: Saturday, May 8

Time: 12:30 – 4:30 pm (4 Hours)

Hand-building Clay Objects

LEARN 3 techniques – Pinch, Slab and Coil. I will show you actual examples of simple (and tasteful) hand-made objects and vessels (and demonstrate how they were made) then let you decide what you would like to create.

PLAY with the clay as you practise and build one or more pieces. I will be there to support you every step of the way.

RELAX as you become fully engrossed in the making process. Working with clay has a way of completely diverting your attention away for your ‘everyday life’ which in turn gives you a break from your usual thinking.
