Workshops at Janet's Studio in Narre Warren North


Workshop Format

Each Workshop has a specific theme, and Janet demonstrates each technique in an easy to follow, step by step process, for beginners through to advanced students.
The day will be broken up into sections where Janet demonstrates a technique, ie the eyes and nose, then you will do a study in your work book and then begin your final drawing. At the end of the workshop you will have a working book of notes and sketches as well as a final drawing at least three quarters completed.
Janet supplies the reference image to work from in each workshop, although you are welcome to supply your own.
Each workshop features a specific subject and gives an intensive and detailed look at the subject.

Bookings

Please email Janet with your booking enquiries. 
Payment is made on the day.
External workshop costs vary, prices available on application to the specific organiser.
Confirmations and materials lists will be emailed or posted out closer to the workshop date.

Kingfisher on Mossy Branch
Four day workshop.

We will be completing one image this time, of a kingfisher on a mossy branch in colour pencil. Each day we will do studies of different features, ie eyes, beaks, feet, moss, wood. These studies will include other birds than our kingfisher, to give you a wider understanding of how to draw birds of all kinds. We will be doing graphite studies as well as colour pencil studies. All the colour pencil techniques needed to complete our Kingfisher drawing will be learnt as well. On Tuesday we have a longer session over drinks and nibbles with a discussion session and followed by a dinner.
 This is a four day workshop, priority given to bookings for the four day.

For more info, contact Janet.                      Cost is $420 for the four days.  Individual days are $120 each day.



Tone into Colour.
There is a skill to separating the pattern of subjects from their tonal shading and translating their 3Dness into 2D colour. We will learn to work from a colour image into grey tones, then into colour, then a patterned subject into tone and pattern.
Scarlet Robin on a tap in Colour Pencil.
Combining two subjects into the one image is our challenge in this workshop. We will learn how to measure our subjects, to make them correct size to each other as well as how to draw them both in colour pencil. We will have some real taps to look at as well as photographs.

Cost is $100 per workshop
For more info, contact Janet.
