For quite some time a number of our visitors have commented about how incredibly beautiful the natural landscape is at Crystal Castle and how wonderful it would be to paint, draw or sculpt.
Well, we are very pleased to announce that Crystal Castle will now offer a range of art workshops with the very first one day drawing workshop to be held on Sunday 24th of July 2011with visual artist Sharon Muir.
Sharon has worked as a professional artist for more than two decades. She uses a range of media in her work and her last two solo exhibitions have been inspired by her concern about our diminishing natural world. Her work has been selected for nationally recognised competitions such as the Jacaranda Drawing Award, Prometheus Visual Art Award and Dominique Segan Drawing Award.
Sharon has traveled widely as a freelance art teacher and has taught workshops throughout Australia, including touring outback QLD and NSW for three years as part of the Flying Arts Team. She has also facilitated numerous large-scaled community art projects. A talented and enthusiastic teacher Sharon really enjoys nurturing the creativity of her students.
The drawing workshop will focus on drawing techniques and materials with graphite pencils and felt tipped pens. Weather permitting they will be held outside and participants will have an opportunity to draw from the abundant beauty of nature in the Castle grounds. Sharon will be guiding you to explore the amazing variety of patterns, forms and textures found in nature and to experiment with a variety of techniques in a relaxed but stimulating environment.
Beginners and more experienced artists are welcome. With only ten places available, make sure you book NOW to avoid disappointment.
