Acrylics, Oils, Watercolours, Sketching with Christine Tysoe
Acrylics, Oils, Watercolours, Sketching
Thursday 8:30am to 11:30am
Christine grew up in picturesque Inverell, rural NSW, and discovered her passion for colour and all things arty, at an early age. Having experimented with many different mediums and attending courses in everything imaginable, Christine now favours watercolour, pen and wash, acrylics and oils. Her forte is portraits, especially children, her grandchildren being a constant inspiration... and colourful floral subjects often from her beloved garden... her second passion after painting.
Christine is a published illustrator of childrens books, a successful art exhibitor and many commissioned works. Now a teacher herself, she aims to help her students develop their own unique style in whatever their chosen subject may be. "being creative should be fun and uplifting... be brave, it's just paint, and if it doesn't work... we'll just paint over it!"

Workshops with Kaylene Cooper
Workshops throughout the year
If you are interested in putting detail into your artwork, either Watercolour or Acrylic pieces then you will enjoy and no doubt be challenged in Kaylene’s workshops. Most of her paintings feature Nature / Florals. Kaylene Cooper has always been interested in drawing & painting even as a child. It has only been since moving to the Gold Coast in 1987 that the opportunity arose to start painting again. This was by the way of folk art, setting her on the painting path and also led her to teaching (for a number of years), selling her pieces at local markets. The techniques learnt in folk art has given her control of the brush, which has helped her with Watercolour.
