Make Your Mark

Sunday 24th September 2017.  10am to 4pm (arriving at 9.30 am for 10 am start)

 Long to begin an art practice, but don’t know where to start?

  • Too much to do and too little time for your art?
  • Seeking fresh inspiration for your existing art practice?

Give yourself the gift of Make Your Mark.

This one-day retreat offers everything you need to begin, restart and sustain your artistic life. Spend the day in a large open studio, surrounded by bush, working with Marie Haass. Marie is a highly trained and experienced artist and teacher. Her feedback and guidance is tailored to individual needs, so both first timers and experienced artists will benefit. Enjoy working with other artists in an atmosphere of exploration, encouragement and fun.

In the morning session, make a series of quick sketches and sustained drawings from a life model. The focus is on measurements, proportions and shading techniques, using graphite and charcoal.

 In the afternoon session, create from that intuitive place we all have within, and experiment with materials and techniques to produce a self-portrait. The emphasis will be on expression and connection.

Suitable for all levels of experience (adult)
