Studio Painting Party - Gum Blossoms
Each term I design at least two new Painting Party subjects and one of them just HAS to be flowers.
Last term I was asked to include gum leaves and blossoms in a watercolour party night, and that was when I knew this Term's flowers just had to be 'gum blossoms' or "Corymbia" ficifolia if you're a little bit fancy.
So I sketched and sketched until I came up with a version of gum blossoms that I would be happy to hang on my own wall, and that I knew I could teach. It really came together after I painted gums for my Instagram Spring Series that ran throughout September.
We'll be starting with a black canvas and monoprinting our own beautiful backgrounds before layering on branches, leaves and flowers.
You'll stand back and go "WOW" when you've finished this one, and then you'll get to take it home - strung, varnished and ready to hang.
So here are the details you'll need to know -
I'll provide all the paints, brushes, and canvases you need, (and the cups and corkscrew too!) and we'll paint something you'll be proud of, step by step.
Paint Alongs are now $99 (incl GST) and include a double thick, 50 x 40cm canvas. If you would prefer a thin canvas please let me know in the notes. I recommend the thick edged canvases as they have slightly better quality canvas and thicker, more sturdy, timber stretcher bars.
Your finished canvas will be ready to hang as soon as you get home (depending on the weather).
WHAT TO BRING - wear your painting clothes and bring anything you'd like to eat or drink (I do have tea and coffee). Don't forget your sense of fun - it's a party!
WHERE - My NEW Shiny Happy Studio is located at 1/3 Progress Court, Harlaxton, Toowoomba. Turn off Ruthven Street at 'Funberry Kids' opposite Downlands College (Mole Street), then take the first right (Peace Street, which then becomes Progress Court) and follow it all the way around to the end - you'll see my new sign!
PAYMENT - Seats are limited, so please reserve your place and pay online. A minimum of 8 people are required for the session to run. If a session is cancelled a refund will be arranged.
PHOTOGRAPHY - Please understand that photographs will be taken throughout the session and a group photograph will be taken at the end. These photographs will be used for promotional purposes but you will not be identified by name without consent. Please let Anna know if you are not able to be included in these photographs.
AGE LIMITS - to ensure the comfort of all patrons over the length of the session I ask that all participants be high school aged or above to come to a Painting Party. I encourage parents to go home and draw and paint with their children and I offer Online Paint Alongs that are perfect to help with this.
**** VERY IMPORTANT ****
CANCELLATIONS - Our cancellation policy is 48 HOURS before your scheduled class. To cancel, please send an email and we will arrange a refund.
Any cancellations after this 48 hour in advance time period WILL NOT be refunded or transferred to another class. Sorry, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Just like a concert or theatre ticket, you are always welcome to send someone in your place if you or a family member is sick.
Because of limited seating availability, please note that “no call, no shows” will be charged the full amount of the session without a refund. Thanks for understanding.
Now let's make some art!
