At the first class you’ll be setting up an easel and drawing your choice of the diverse landscapes there. The painting class is an extension of the landscape drawing workshop. You will select one of your previous drawings and use this as a reference for the acrylic painting. Registration is for two sessions.
Mt Tenneriffe is a place that everyone has seen as they’re driving down the Hume, but few have visited. With it’s huge granite boulders and steep, bush-covered slopes, it can look imposing to those who haven’t walked it before. But looks can be deceiving. The walk is surprisingly accessible with car access right to the edge of the Tenneriffe Nature Conservation Reserve. From there’s it’s a relatively quick (but steep) scramble to the top. The effort is well worth it for the stunning views that greet you once you reach the peak.
As part of the ancient eucalypts project, we’ll be holding a photographic workshop with Alison Pouliot, well known for her work as a mycologist but also a published photographer and engaging raconteur. In this workshop we will visit a small sample of the ancient trees and learn the techniques to best showcase their strengths and some of the battles they have endured to reach their immense age.
