ART ON SATURDAYS: Abstraction: A Painting Workshop with Anthea Kemp

Tutor: Anthea Kemp

Beginners to Intermediate: Series of 2 workshops

Saturday 15 June, 1 - 4pm
Saturday 22 June, 1 - 4pm

Familiar landscape and memory have been on going themes in Anthea Kemp’s painting process. From these themes, her interest in the physicality of painting and how particular motifs, marks and gesture formed from elements in the natural landscape inform her own work.

In these two workshops, participants will explore abstraction and become aware of how particular art elements can be used to create a painting. Anthea will guide you through the process of responding to a subject, whether it be a place, figure, or memory, and then begin the process of creating an abstract painting.

During these workshops, you will be free to explore the qualities of gouache or acrylic paint and have the ability to tap into your imagination through expression.

Please note: participants must be 14 years and above.

Single session: $20 members / $25 non-members
Three or more sessions: $10 discount off full price
