CHOOSE YOUR PATH WORKSHOP: creative approach to mixed medium on paper
The Moores Building, Friday 20TH August 2021, 10am – 12:30pm
Join Creative Connections visual artists for a mixed medium class on paper.
With a choice of lead, charcoal, pastel, paint and posca join four artists of mixed ability to learn, experiment and share individuals’ different creative approach to paper. The session will be facilitated by artist Natalie Scholtz who will demonstrate techniques and layering dry and wet medium on paper. By the end of the session, we hope you choose your path and personalise your love of working on paper.
Artists with complex needs will be given priority.

Creative Connections Art and Poetry Exhibitions have been organised with the purpose
of demonstrating through creative pursuits, the diverse abilities and personalities of people with complex needs .
The greatest benefit of Creative Connections is that it allows networking and sharing, not only between artist and poet, but also between the many similar, but distinct service provider organisations and the community. Communication beyond regular pathways often results which can lead to new opportunities for artists.
