Open your Artist’s Eye – one day workshop on Waiheke Island

These are some of the things people have said to me about why they don’t try thier hand at painting:
I don’t have the space to leave my arty things spread out for a long period of time.
I can’t draw.
I don’t have a creative bone in my body.

Come spend a day with me. I can show you different ways to open your artist’s eye.
We’ll go on a wander to collect references with your camera.
I will help you find that creative place that enables an artist to transform references into a mixed media painting.

**Please bring along your smart phone (and connector) or digital camera.
I will provide all art materials.

Using cork floats that I found on an old fishing net I am wandering down another track with my weather or not sculpture.
