Art in the Park – Still Life Painting
Join the Parramatta Art Society for a leisurely day of art at Old Government House and get up close with some of the beautiful items from the collection which are not normally on display.
In this 4 hour workshop, Parramatta Art Society member, Brian Richardson, will teach you the stages of creating a still life work of art.
Using curious and incredibly unique items from the Old Government House collection, a special composition will be arranged for you to capture on your canvas to create your own individual artwork. The workshop will commence with a practical demonstration of some basic drawing techniques, where you will sketch the composition before painting. No matter where you are on your artistic journey, the Parramatta Art Society will be on hand to help.
Come along for a chance to get up close with some of the beautiful items from the collection which are not normally on display. Drawing materials, painting boards and acrylic paint will be supplied. At the end of the workshop you can take home your artwork too.
There will be a break for lunch where there will be an opportunity to view the Making Good exhibition and some of the artworks created by convict artisans.
