Entree to Encaustic
"The paintings of Jenny Sages are unlike those of anybody else. She is the quiet achiever on the Australian art scene. Admired and respected as an artist's artist, Jenny generally keeps out of the limelight. Her encaustic oil and pigment technique is unique in that her paintings have a certain density, while the surface is gouged and scarred - the pigment is rubbed in by hand. It is a very labour intensive, intuitive method of working. Sages is a master painter who in her work, celebrates a sense of visual intelligence.
In this workshop Jenny will show you how she interprets the landscape with her beautiful layering in encaustic. She will show you the tools she uses in her expressive mark making and share her unique approach to painting in this two day workshop.
A board with sufficient wax is provided for the workshop.

Drawing Your Story
Maximise your creative potential by drawing on the wealth of your imagination and memory to form your own unique stories. In this workshop Andrew will take you through a process of visualisation exercises to create imaginative compositions of your own. Working with charcoal, you will also develop technical skill that will enhance your imagery through a greater understanding of line and tone study.
His teaching and drawing span a period of 35 years in Australia, the United Kingdom and USA. He has been a finalist in the major drawing prizes in Australia including a seven times finalist in the Dobell.
Andrew will demonstrate ways to look inwards for a more personal story by using poetry, text, music and song as starting points. It is the commitment to drawing that forms the core of ones art practice.
"Andrew's ability to put traditional approaches aside, allows a freer and more individual way of seeing and thinking which is totally liberating. Couple this with Andrew's positive attitude, his passion for drawing and his ability to impart knowledge and you have a learning experience that will stay with you and continue to benefit long after the end of the course." - Graeme Nichols, Sturt Summer School.

Your Artistic Eye - An expressive, personal approach to Landscape Painting
The workshop is intended as a master class for those interested in the concept of a personalised, expressive 'connection to country' who wish to develop their own visual language around the land as a subject and their own particular thinking about the genre of landscape painting. Learning to look selectively and practice opportunism with your ideas and practice. Working with instinct but rather than reacting to an impulse, learning to include your thinking and education.
Resource and study materials such as sketch books, drawings, photography and small scale concept studies will be used in an experimental process that uses each artist's intuitive, instinctive strengths as well as developing skill based techniques, so that the considered, creative experimentation achieves a unique interpretation for each individual student to then pursue with further confidence.
