Thank you to everyone that visited us at the Yarraville Festival on the weekend, and a big congratulations to Marita E who won the $500 gift voucher to be spent on any art class of her choosing!!
We have some exciting new workshops coming up so please check out our latest class schedule HERE.
LONG POSE LIFE DRAWING/PAINTING returns for a 2 week session – 26th August and 2nd September!
For two weeks the model will take the same pose for four hours. Although untutored Erika Gofton will be there to offer guidance if needed and at the beginning of the first week participants will be given a chance to request demonstrations for the remaining weeks. These classes will be kept to a smaller number so there is room to spread out. Draw, paint or even sculpt! A great opportunity to experiment and try new things.
Places are limited, book your easel HERE.
Our OPEN STUDIO sessions return in Term 3 with Erika Gofton. Join us to use The Art Room as your studio – a welcoming environment and a support for your arts practice.
Places are limited, the term begins July 18th, all the details and to book HERE!
Our Foundation Painting 1 class is scheduled to run in Term 1, 2017, starting on Monday 6th February. There will be two classes, running from 10:oo-12.30 or 7:00-9.30pm
This class is taught by artist and The Art Room founder Erica Gofton. It is an 8 week class designed to expand your painting experience and provide a foundation of knowledge for your future art practice.
Hi everyone! As some of you know I work behind the scenes looking after The Art Room’s newsletters and social media. I’m taking a break to focus on my personal project This Wild Song, a series of photographic portraits and interviews with Australian women artists.
I’ll be leaving you in the capable hands of artists Merryn Trevethan and Abby Storey! Many of you have previously met Merryn as she regularly hosts workshops with us. She is currently living in Singapore and regularly exhibiting in Singapore and Australia.
Abby is a photographic artist from New Zealand and is now based in Melbourne. She’s a fantastic addition to the team and brings a wealth of knowledge from her personal arts practice and extensive experience working in galleries.
A warm welcome to Abby and Merryn, and I’ll see you around The Art Room soon!
Our OPEN STUDIO classes return in Term 4 and begin Tuesday 4th October! Places are limited, all the details and to book click HERE.
So exciting to see our mezzanine level get installed at our new studio! And we’re now working hard building internal walls, this area will be the new bathroom!
Please note that all classes are still operating from our current studio at the Cotton Mills and you’ll be the first to know when the new studio on Hyde Street has it’s grand opening!!
Merryn Trevethan is a big believer in colour practice not colour theory. Join her to learn the fundamentals of colour mixing over 2 intensive sessions and take the mystery out of colour mixing once and for all!
COLOURMIXMASTER begins Wednesday 17th August, places are limited, all the details and to book click HERE.
Thanks to YOU we not only met our Pozible target but smashed it! You are helping turn this beautiful shell of a building into a fantastic studio for you, our wonderful students! Plus we’ll be hosting exhibitions and live performances!
A little note from our Director:
WOW what can I say! I am totally overwhelmed and so incredibly touched by the support that has been shown to The Art Room. I can’t thank you all enough for not just your pledges but your kind words of support and encouragement, offers of help and donations to our studio. I am really humbled and touched. I promise to make the best studio I can for you all to come and be inspired in, to be challenged and to learn in. It is YOUR studio and I love that we are creating an incredible community of support and friendship. Thank you all soooooo much.
