We’re thrilled to welcome Yvette Coppersmith to The Art Room!
Yvette will be hosting a fantastic new workshop series, PORTRAITURE MASTERCLASS, designed to develop and strengthen observational skills, and provide a structure in working with the portrait. Topics covered include palette organisation, colour mixing, composition, preparatory studies, portrait proportions and painting techniques.
Places are limited to so please book your spot HERE to avoid disappointment!
We have a life drawing masterclass coming up on 4 December. Taught by Godwin Bradbeer, Head to Head – Investigating the Human Head, will address portraiture with a concentration on structural aspects of the head, neck and upper body.
There are currently a few spots available: click here for further information and bookings.
The Art Room’s Ilona Nelson is working on an exciting and important project called This Wild Song! It is a series of conceptual portraits and interviews with Australian women visual artists who have a unique voice.
This is an ambitious project with over 70 artists involved and the number continues to grow. It was created to support and promote Australian women artists, celebrate the wealth of talent in our country and promote equality in the arts.
Ilona has just launched a crowdfunding campaign to allow her to create another 20 portraits. We’d love your help by sharing the campaign with your friends, making a contribution, or both!
Thank you so much for your support, Ilona and the artists really appreciate it!
