Art Haven - Hooked on Pastels Workshop

Saturday 18th-Sunday 19th April 2020

Join internationally recognised artist Marion Towns for two days of pastel heaven! Collingwood local Marion has a creditable list of exhibitions behind her and her works sell to art lovers around the world. Marion’s high level of skill and her striking choice of colours epitomises the NZ summer perfectly!

On Saturday head out for plein air sketching – you’ll learn how to develop versatile methods for creating ‘field sketches’ that you can take back into the studio. In the afternoon Marion will provide guidance in the process of translating your sketches into a finished artwork. On Sunday, Marion will show you how to fine tune your soft pastel techniques.

This workshop will enable you gain confidence using soft pastels. You will leave with one or two completed pastel paintings and a piece of our lovely Collingwood art haven!

Fee includes all tuition and workshop notes, 2 M/A Teas, 2 lunches, 1 dinner with drinks, optional movie night and basic art equipment. A list of art materials will be supplied upon sign-up or purchase an 'art pack' with everything you need for an extra cost.

Collingwood has a range of accommodation options from budget friendly to luxury.
