COST: $285 PER STUDENT
~ Bookings closed ~
Join artist Jude Fleming for a weekend exploring drawing and painting techniques that will be expressive, personal and unique. The Language of Landscape will focus on the local landscape with both en plein air and studio work, invoking a personal response to the land and natural environment.
Suitable for all levels of art making experience, the workshop will enable a sensory approach to landscape art works. On each of the two days participants will venture into the outdoors in the morning taking visual notes and making drawings. Afternoons will be spent fleshing out the drawings with paint and creating works that pay homage to the landscape.
ABOUT THE TUTOR

It speaks of ancient knowledge. It has entirely unique flora and fauna which holds a strong appeal for me.”

She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from National Art School and has shared her practice and studio with students for more than 30 years, conducting regular weekly classes, as well as regional, interstate and international workshops.
