www.longstreetstudio.org is now live and the studios renovations are near complete. It will be my home base for getting stuck into making art and running workshops.
I've been keeping quiet of late spending most of my time renovating a new studio but to start the ball rolling for 2013 I'm exhibiting in the Espionage 2 Year Anniversary Show.
The details are listed on this event page. Keep informed with whats going on by checking the Espionage Gallery Homepage. Finally, come along and get yourself some original, made in Adelaide art.
I'm running a 3 day workshop for 9-15 year olds next week. We're going to look at Dali as an influence and create a sculpture aswell as a surreal landscape painting/drawing. It's running through Carclew Youth Arts centre. If you have young 'uns who like the arts then they should definitely look into some of the holiday workshops that they run.
For me, this will be the first workshop of many this year. I'm currently renovating a studio space which I can facilitate workshops from. I've got 2 workshops that I am planning to start with :
The first is a Pop Art influenced workshop that takes participants through the the entire process of putting together a frame and priming a canvas, generating ideas, composing an image and creating the final artwork using stencils, paint and screen prints.
The second workshop is hebel stone sculpture. Participants will be designing and carving out their own sculpture of a head, taking influence from the Easter Island stone sculptures and using traditional Balinese stone carving tools and techniques.
Once the workshop has been renovated I will be posting information on these workshops, so until then keep watching this space!
