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.
Each workshop features a specific subject and gives an intensive and detailed look at the subject and techniques to create it.
