Ongoing Beginners’ workshop – the next step 

With Dianne Emery

This four-day workshop has been specifically designed for those who have completed a Beginners' Workshop with the Melbourne Friends, or an equivalent course, and wish to further their botanical art skills. Those who are unable to join a regular class may like to take this opportunity to continue their studies.
Dianne will help her students to refresh and extend the drawing and painting techniques learnt in the first workshop and look in more detail at composition, colour, and brush and pencil skills. She will also cover the use of aids such as masking fluid, 'paint removing' sponges and brushes, and demonstrate effective ways to fix mistakes such as lost highlights and other mishaps. The cost of the course includes materials to be used during the workshop.
Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available but students will need to provide their own lunch.
When: Monday 10, Tuesday 11 Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 July 2017 
Time: 10 am to 4 pm
Where: Whirling Room Studio, GMT Building, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne
Cost: Friends $395 Non-Members $447
