Chris Cran: The Art of Possibilities
May 24-26, 2019  The Art Centre, qathet region.
Register today! 
What makes you stop and study a work of art?

How does a work of art transcend the mechanics of line and colour?

In this two day workshop, nationally acclaimed painter Chris Cran will lead participants through a series of playful explorations to help them consider their work from the eyes of the viewer. Expanding on fundamental techniques including colour, value, line and form we will discover how aspects of mark making and colour interaction impact the viewing experience. Artists will be encouraged to push off from their usual routine and try something different; to consider how their current practice can be elevated and, above all, enjoy experimenting with possibilities.

*All levels of painters are welcome *The workshop will move through many explorations in two days therefore only acrylic paints should be used.
