HSC Intensive: Working Plein Air

15 Apr 2018 - 15 Apr 2018

Work with artist Nicole Kelly in a workshop which focuses on a practical approach to drawing and painting en plein air.

The workshop will begin with a discussion of what is meant by en plein air, referring to artists who work in this genre, both historical and contemporary. Students will then learn about composition, palette setup, colour mixing and approaches to applying paint and mark making.

Participants will produce a small to medium scale painting while working en plein air, and may work in either acrylic or oil paint.

The tutor, Nicole Kelly, lives and works in NSW and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) from National Art School, Sydney in 2009. Kelly won the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship in 2009, the Glebe Youth Art Award 2013, Hazelhurst Gallery Local Artist Award in 2011, Gruner Prize 2008 and the Robert Le Gay Brereton Drawing Prize 2007. She has also been awarded four international residencies in Europe and her work has been included in exhibitions in France and Spain. Kellly has been a finalist In the Wynne Prize, the Black Swan Prize and the Portia Geach Memorial Award. Major public commissions include NSW Health and South Eastern Sydney Local Health District. Kelly has held solo exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne and her work has been curated into exhibitions at Hazelhurst Gallery and the Moran Gallery. Kelly’s work is in public and private collections in Australia, France and England. 

Cost: $90. Class takes place from 10am - 4pm on Sunday 15 April 2018.
