New Workshops

The Orchard Garden Workshops, March 2016

We are holding two an Orchard Garden Workshops in March. The garden is changing and the beginnings of autumn will be showing as will late summer blooms.

This garden workshop will begin with Jenni demonstrating how to capture the essence of the garden in as few brushstrokes as possible. You will be able to use your own materials that may include oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolour, pastel or pencil. The aim of the day is to dismiss fine detail and look for the inspiration and character of the subject.

Each artist/student will be able to work on their own subject with one on one tuition. At the end of the day there will be an opportunity to view the groups work together.

A home cooked lunch will be provided using many organic ingredients from the garden; including fruits, vegetables and fresh free range eggs.

Basic art materials are available for sale.

For bookings please contact Jenni to secure your place  –

This workshop is designed to help prepare the artist for a ‘day out’ sketching. You will take just enough materials for easy management and carrying in the field. No need to bring easels.

Bring what you can easily carry – think visiting a foreign country, a train trip, a visit to the beach, city or landscape and plan to come home with some field sketches to work up in the studio, or not.

Suggested materials include – pencils, pen and ink, watercolour and pastels. You will need a sketchbook or drawing board with paper cut to size and fixative if using pastel.

Watercolour, gouache and ink artists will need a bag that will carry a palette, brushes, water container, rag or paper towel and water. This may include a bottle of drinking water that can be refilled from a tap in the park.

You may like to simply come with a pad and pencil. Suggested black led pencils include a variety of sizes from H to 6B, ie: hard and soft black lead pencils. Coloured pencils are also useful including watercolour pencils. You may like to use charcoal.

Wet ones are useful for cleaning hands in the field. You may like to bring a cushion, light blanket or something to sit on if planning to work on the ground. There will be seats throughout the gardens – but you may need to be quick to secure a spot.

It is a public holiday and if the sun is shining the gardens will have more visitors. This can add to the subject material – and the need to sketch quickly.

Bring enough paper and materials to last the day. There will be panoramic subjects to paint and exquisite close up work to do. The choice will be up to you.

Bring a hat.

I will give a demonstration of a variety of subjects in different mediums and then help each student as a one on one with your chosen subject.

Three New Workshops are planned for Spring 2013

Two  Orchard Garden Workshops

The Orchard Garden Workshops will be held in the Orchard Garden at Eltham South Fine Art Gallery. This garden was established in 1948 and through the 1950s and 60s by Grace and Arthur Mitchell who came to Eltham at this time. The garden supported the family as well as ensured the Pastry Shop Grace commenced in the 1950s always had fresh produce and eggs. Today the garden is maintained by Jenni Mitchell and Mervyn Hannan as a legacy to Jenni’s parents. It is also the home of Eltham South Fine Art: Studios & Gallery.

The workshop will begin with a talk in the studio and demonstration of how to paint the landscape and garden quickly using tone and colour to record the essence. It is suitable for beginners and advanced students.

Bring your favourite materials – including oil, acrylic, gouache, pastel or pencil. Basic materials are available for purchase from the studio.

All enquiries and bookings contact Jenni Mitchell 9439 3458 or M. 0417 585 102

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
