Juliet Best Workshop
A very successful workshop with well-known Wellington artist, Juliet Best was held at the clubrooms on Monday 22nd May.
Sharing different art products, Julia demonstrated and explained how to apply these with special emphasis on texture techniques.
Andrew, from Gordon Harris dropped in and had a chat and very generously donated several products for the club to use.
Each participant ended the workshop with a finished painting which was displayed at the end of the day. We had great encouragement from Juliet and she gave us all confidence in our own work.
Thank you members for the overwhelming support for this day.
I think everyone would agree that it was a most enjoyable day and applaud Juliet for making it so.
Juliet Best ran her second workshop at the Club. We learnt glazing techniques on a simple landscape and 17 artists all completed a painting. Juliet took us from gesso, to building up layers of glaze and acrylic and a final texturing product.
Andrew from Gordon Harris called in as we used Golden products from their art supply shop.
In July we attended a workshop held at the Blackmore and Best Gallery at Shelly Bay under the guidance of artist, Julia Best. We learnt different techniques and all produced work we were proud of. We found Juliet to be a very helpful and encouraging tutor and she in turn, was very impressed with the Wellington Art Club, saying there was lots of talent on our walls.
We hope to have Juliet back next year for a block course as there is a lot of interest.
