Classes and Workshops

Children’s Class: Have A Go At… Painting a Landscape!

You don’t need to leave town to see beautiful scenery these school holidays – you can paint it!

On January 18 2022, children aged 8-13 are invited to join us at the Feilding Art Centre to have a go at painting landscapes. Guided by experienced teacher and accomplished artist, Eris Newson, each student will learn the techniques required to produce a painting that transports them to another place.

Students will need to bring a photo of the scene they’d like to paint.

All other materials, plus morning tea, are included in the ticket price – $3 from Eventfinda or visit the Art Centre to register in person.

Life Drawing

Untutored Life Drawing – Monday 6th and 13th of December from 12pm to 2pm

In this series of life drawing sessions, you will be able to test and refine your observational drawing skills in a relaxed, social environment.

For drawing beginners, this is a great excuse to try out new subject matter, while experts may wish to come along and practice their technique.

Classes are casual and untutored – you can call the Art Centre book in advance, or drop in and pay on the day. Entry is $10 per person.

We have an unclothed model to draw from, so the session is limited to those over the age of 18.
