Come join us for a culinary and creative outing at Johannesburg Botanical Gardens (Emmarentia Dam) for a painting workshop and a picnic.  Your art materials will be included – all you need is to bring is a picnic blanket and/or a chair. Picnic hampers are optional and to be ordered when booking.

The Art:

I will demonstrate a painting on canvas – with charcoal and acrylics – from the surrounding area, start to finish.  Then it will be your turn – you can be a complete beginner, this art session is specifically designed for beginners and novices alike.  This process was created by me to finish a painting in the shortest possible time.  I will be there to guide you – it is similar to the art lesson I teach at Tietiesbaai every year.  The subject matter (what you paint) must be simple and not have too much detail.  Materials will be communal so you need not carry any materials with you.  You will receive a hardboard canvas and a palette.  The paint and brushes will be shared –bring your own if you can – hog or bristle..  Find a nice spot and I will tutor you in composition, drawing and painting.
