‘PLEIN AIR’ PAINTING WORKSHOP


Join Wendy Jagger for a day of painting ‘en plein air’ in Victoria’s beautiful High Country on Mount Buller. Whether you have dabbled a bit in 2D art or are a raw beginner, there is something for everyone. Learn about composition, techniques of gouache painting and revel in the joy of painting in the open air surrounded by the mountains. Limit of 8 participants.

Complete Artist Quality Gouache Art Kit (optional) $120 - includes everything you’ll need and is yours to keep OR - Provide your own range of gouache paints, paper, pencil, palette, water container and brushes.

You will need to bring: lunch, drink bottle, folding chair - light weight, (low chairs, like beach chairs work best as the ground becomes your work table), suitable clothing for sun and potential cold weather, back pack (with enough room for above gear and your art kit), walking shoes, sunscreen and hat. We will be walking to our painting locations, nothing too strenuous.
